The Immigration Act 2016 states that UK employers are required to check ‘Right to Work’ documents to verify that a person is eligible to work in the UK before employing them. You may be liable for a civil penalty if you employ someone who doesn’t have the right to work in the UK. Organisations, regardless of their size can often struggle to implement a process that is secure, reliable and accessible to all its employee’s to use and understand.
The app-based solution captures the documents presented for Right to Work and a photo of the candidate presenting them; demonstrating the Home Office process has been followed and that the check took place in person. If more than one document is required to process a valid Right to Work check, the system will ensure the additional documents are captured.
Right to Work records are created instantly and saved in the cloud, meaning they’re auditable and accessible, wherever you are – you can even view and update them via mobile device.
To keep things simple, you can create a single employee profile that can be integrated with your employee management system to maintain a single employee record. Central document storage provides a comprehensive overview of your employees right to work status, including reports on employee nationality, visa type.
