If you have a robust ID authentication process in place, the chances are that you will detect an illegal worker at some point. At best, you could be dealing with someone that has overstayed their visa, at worst; you may be confronted with a victim of people trafficking.
Regardless of their origin, the discovery of an illegal worker can be a sensitive and potentially volatile situation. It is important to remain calm and deal with it through the proper channels, to ensure that you remain on the correct side of the law.
