Managing hiring risks

Regulations vary around the world, but hiring people who aren't entitled to work in your country will expose you to legal action and financial penalties - not to mention long-term damage to your reputation. Checking the identity of workers is more than just a compliance issue - it has a very real impact on the bottom line.

Reduce the risk of hiring an illegal worker by using technology to recognise counterfeit ID documents. Using the right technology also gives a detailed audit trail to show you've taken the necessary steps to check an individual has the right to work for you.

Make sure you have the right processes in place to allow your company to recruit globally, without fear of sanctions or increased risk.
