Trelawney News, owned by Singhbury’s News Ltd, was handed a £15,000 illegal working civil penalty.
A civil penalty notice informs an organisation it has employed someone who did not or does not have permission to work in the UK, in breach of the prevention of illegal working regime, according to employment advisors Davidson Morris.
The store, based at Trelawney Avenue in Langley, was named and shamed on a government list of businesses that have received illegal working penalties recently.
The fines were issued between October 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021, and include businesses such as chicken shops, off licences and car washes from up and down the country.
A Home Office spokesperson said: “The government is tackling illegal immigration and the harm it causes by removing those with no right to be in the UK.
“We continue to work with law enforcement agencies to tackle illegal migration in all its forms. Our New Plan for Immigration will fix the broken system; making it fair to those in genuine need and firm on those who seek to abuse it.”
