We have a live in Filipino nanny who has been living with us

Resolved Question:

We have a live in Filipino nanny who has been living with us for 3.5 years. She is applying for her husband to join her here in the uk. She tells us that he has somewhere to stay nearby but for the purposes of the visa application she is asking us to sign documents and provide evidence that he will in fact be living with us which is not true. What are the legal implications of signing such documents?

What are the penalties? Please know that we are not intending to commit such an offence but rather I ask the question so that I can clearly demonstrate the implications of the ask to the nanny so she understands why we would not be able to do this
