Right to Work Checks
All employers are required to make appropriate document checks to establish an individual applicant’s identity and right to work in the UK. Failure to do so makes an employer liable to a civil penalty of up to £20,000 per employee, potential closure of business, fines and imprisonment. This does not take account of the reputational damage that can be caused by failing to make the necessary checks.
