Right To Work checks EXPLAINED (and how to do them)

It is really important that all UK employers carry out right to work checks. This ensures that they are hiring legally and do not accidentally employ illegal workers who do not have the right to work in the UK and/or discriminate against individuals during the hiring process.

Simran, one of our paralegals, covers what right to work checks are, what you need to check, the importance of the checks (and the consequences of not checking) and where you can access further UK government guidance.


How to AVOID hiring illegal workers

In this webinar, we cover the importance of checks during the hiring process, the notices you may receive from the Home Office if you are believed to be hiring illegal workers and the penalties (with recent statistics) that you may face if you do not comply with the correct codes of conduct.
