The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act (2006) makes it a criminal offence to employ someone who does not have the right to work in the U.K

All employers have a legal responsibility to perform identity checks on all people employed by them.

The Act requires that Right to Work checks must be carried out before an employee starts work for you. An NI number is not sufficient proof of the right to work and must be accompanied by another approved document. Employers are at risk of prosecution if they are found to be employing workers illegally.

To protect your business from being prosecuted for unwittingly recruiting illegal workers, let us manage the checking process for you. Our experienced advisers can visit your premises and ensure that you comply with the new regime.

Our experienced personnel will:

  • Audit existing employees checking their compliance with Right to Work in the UK legislation
  • Update all of your employee records in line with legal requirements
  • Ensure you avoid falling foul of Racial Discrimination legislation when preventing illegal working
  • Provide you with a report detailing your employees right to work status’

You can also choose to have advice and support with non-compliance and consequential dismissal procedure and liaison with Immigration Service through our HR Support Service.
