Civil Penalties

Civil Penalties

Failing to conduct appropriate right to work checks on all of your employees may affect your company credit rating, long-term growth and reputation.  You will also have to pay significant civil penalties.

Awards and Accreditations

All UK employers have a responsibility to avoid employing illegal workers. 

Right to work checks

Employers are under a duty to check that every employee has a right to work. You must conduct this check before your employees commence working for you.

You must obtain prescribed documents from your workers as evidence of their right to work in the UK. Failure to do so may result in significant financial penalties. It is important to note that you must obtain these documents before any worker commences employment with your organization.
