An employer to whom a penalty notice is given may appeal to the court1 on the ground that:
(1) he is not liable to the imposition of a penalty2;
(2) he is excused payment3; or
(3) the amount of the penalty is too high4.
The court may:
(a) allow the appeal and cancel the penalty5;
(b) allow the appeal and reduce the penalty6; or
(c) dismiss the appeal7.
An appeal is a re-hearing of the Secretary of State's decision to impose a penalty and must be determined having regard to the code of practice8
