I will add to the make a phone call side. Point out to them clearly that they have done it twice and with a third they will be reported and the fines could be substantial, especially after they have done it three times.

However, one thing to weigh here is whether you afford to have herself lose that job because that seems likely, especially given the nature of the boss. UK labor laws might prohibit such retaliation but I have no idea. Regardless, it could get messy.

Upon further review, it might best to send an anonymous e-mail to him and include the text of the e-mail you will send to the authorities if it happens again. Less chance of retaliation that way.
