As an employer you need to carry out right to work checks on all your employees before they start work to provide your business with a defence against a civil penalty if it turns out the individual did not have the right to work. The process for carrying out the checks is prescriptive and regularly changing, with the next change taking effect from 1 October 2022.
In our free update webinar on 3 October our immigration specialists will discuss the process you need to follow to ensure your business is properly protected from what could be a £20,000 fine per illegal worker. We will cover the manual checking process, online digital checks and the use of third party Identity Service Providers as well as explaining which check is appropriate for which documents.
In addition, because we know many businesses are struggling to recruit at the moment, we will be providing a refresher on the options available for recruiting overseas nationals. This will include:
• Sponsorship of skilled workers
• Moving staff within your international group through the Global Business Mobility routes
• Employing overseas nationals without a sponsor licence
