Let's talk about Right to Work checks...

  • The Right to Work service is easy, quick, and gives us complete peace of mind.
    It tells our managers what they need to ask candidates for, giving us confidence that we’re complying with legislation without having to be Right to Work experts ourselves.

  • Compliance is a really critical issue for us. In a business that’s all about people, we can’t afford for a worker not to be who they say they are – and neither can our customers. Now we have an automated check in place, we know that we’ve minimised our risk of that happening

  • We really like working with the team at TrustID – if we call up with a question about a document or need some technical support, they are professional, knowledgeable and so easy to deal with.

A bit about Right To Work compliance

All employers must check that staff are allowed to work in the UK before employing them. To run a compliant Right to Work check, you must check the original identity documents in the presence of the holder, take and keep copies and record the date you made the check. If you employ an illegal worker and cannot show that you carried out the correct Right to Work check, you could face a civil penalty.

You must carry out the same checks on all staff regardless of their nationality. For example, only carrying out Right to Work checks on those who you believe are not British citizens could leave you open to accusations of discrimination – see the Home Office code of practice for employers on avoiding discrimination.

The best place to start if you want to find further information about Right to Work is on the Government’s website where you will find the Right to Work checklist and lot of useful information and tools to ensure you stay compliant.

The Home Office encourage the use of Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) as a way to quickly and easily help you establish the authenticity of ID and provide guidance to this technology which you can download here.em
