All employers in the UK are required to undertake ‘Right to Work’ checks on their staff to prevent those who do not have a legal right to be in the UK from working. Employers need to ensure this process is conducted consistently and thoroughly due to the penalties which may be issued by the Home Office for not doing so. Right to Work checks must be carried out in a manner which is lawful and does not lead to discrimination.
Given the importance placed on carrying out Right to Work checks, all employers should have in place processes, procedures, systems, and training to remain fully compliant at all times. At RVS Solicitors, our team of immigration law specialists will ensure that your business is, and continues to be, compliant with the strict rules defined by the Home Office. If you are yet to implement the necessary checks into your organization, we can show you how, based on the latest best practice. We can also undertake an audit to ensure your Right to Work processes are being followed faithfully by your staff. In doing so, we can recommend where changes may be necessary to improve compliance.
