Right to Work Course Overview
What is a Right to Work check?
As employers, we must fulfil our duty to prevent illegal working. This means that whenever we employ someone, we need to check their right to work in the UK to comply with government legislation.
Employers must carry out the right to work check correctly – even if the applicant comes through a recruitment agency. Carrying out these checks correctly protects organisations from fines and penalties if they unintentionally employ an illegal worker.
So why do I need training?
This course will help you understand your responsibilities under the law and show you how to carry out a right to work check. The Right to Work course also takes you through some examples you might encounter at work.
It also examines the consequences of non compliance, what “leave to enter/ leave to remain” means and how to conduct a thorough step by step document authorisation check.
Taking just 25 minutes to complete, this online training course will make sure that you are confident with right to work checks.
Part of our Compliance series, Right to Work features our unique set of in course features which allow learners to tailor the course to suit their preferences, including controlling the speed of delivery and the colours and contrast to create a relaxing learning environment.
