Right to work checks: advice for employers
Every employer in the UK is under a duty to prevent illegal working and so therefore must conduct a number of checks on all prospective employees prior to the commencement of employment. Once an employee has satisfied those checks, they are then permitted to work (though it is important to note that an employer may have to renew those checks at regular intervals). Whilst these checks are relatively easy to complete (once the correct policies and checklists are in place), the number of employers that are penalised for failing to complete these checks is quite astonishing.
