My child's nanny was recommended by my friend and kept

This answer was rated:

my child's nanny was recommended by my friend and kept asking her to bring her ID proof but she always had an excuse. I wasnt strict about it either as she used to look after my friends children too. I has been now nearly 1.5yrs and she was behaving mysteriously and i doubted her honesty. So i told her that i dont need her anymore and she was aggressive by throwing things in my house. Now she is threatening me that she has been illegal and i have employed her. All these days she had told me that she could stay in this country because her daughter is studying in the school in North London. Last week i have confirmed from one her friends that she is illegal. Would i get in trouble if i report her to the police? She is now working for somebody else.

This question is related to my last question. In that case can i report her illegal status as an anonymous informer? Thanks

Best do it anonymously or not at all: you could be given a civil penalty of up to £20000 for employing someone who is in the UK illegally.

okay. So i better do it at some other time. Other wise she might mention about me.

Yes I think so.

But the fact is that she lied to me that she was eligible to work in UK otherwise i would have let her look after my child.
Also my she has looked after my colleague's children but no excuse, i should have done a proper check. Silly me!!!
