Centrally held court proceedings data indicates that no offenders were found guilty of illegal working up to the end of 2016. Court proceedings data for 2017 will be available in May 2018.

It is not possible to identify how much has been collected in fines from persons convicted of this, or any other, offence as our systems enable us to capture the total amount of financial imposition but do not allow that to be broken down by offence type. To extract information on financial imposition by offence type we would need to conduct a manual search of all current financial penalty accounts within our fine database.
