What is a Right to Work Check?

A right to work check is a Home Office process that establishes whether employees or casual workers have the right to work in the UK.

The Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the United Kingdom. They are a ministerial department, supported by 30 agencies and public bodies.

Identity fraud is a big issue in the UK. One estimate suggested upwards of 1 million illegal immigrants in the UK.

Changing regulations due to Brexit and the political focus on immigration means now is the time to take a second look at your process around Right to Work.

  • Do you know what the new changes around Right to Work are?
  • Have you implemented a plan to manage the changes?
  • How comfortable are you that all your recruitment team knows what to do?
  • You are at risk of fines up to £20,000 per illegal worker if Right to Work checks are not carried out correctly.

Our software app allows you to:

  • Keep up to date with Home Office Guidance changes and with our built-in wizard you cannot get the process wrong.
  • Authenticate the documents and assist the user to make sure no errors take place.
  • Receive instant Right to Work Status.
  • Receive ongoing alerts to expiring documents via a portal.
