Failure to meet Right to Work responsibilities creates substantial risk, both in terms of legal obligations as well as the potential for significant damage to your reputation and to client relationships.
The Immigration Act 2016, which came into force in July 2016, means that failure to comply with Right to Work checks can lead to fines of up to £20,000 per employee and a potential prison sentence of up to 5 years.
Electronic checking of identity documents is becoming best practice across an increasing number of agencies, protecting them and their clients, driving on-boarding efficiencies and providing further differentiation in quality of service.
Following recent tightening of guidance within the NHS Procurement Framework, recruitment agencies who are working within the NHS are required to prove that they have appropriate electronic checking solutions in place in order to be able to place temporary medical staff.
With electronic scanning, you can efficiently and easily make robust identity checks to support compliance with Right to Work legislation and confirm the identity of candidates.
