Whenever we employ someone, we need to check their right to work in the UK to comply with government legislation. As employers, we fulfill our duty to prevent illegal working by implementing a policy of conducting a right to work check on people we employ.
Your responsibility is to carry out the right to work check correctly – even if the applicant comes through a recruitment agency. Carrying out these checks correctly protects us from fines and penalties if we do unintentionally employ an illegal worker.
