Right to Work Checks Simplified

The Home Office has taken a step forward in streamlining right to work checks.

Previously, employers have needed to request paper documents alongside completing an online questionnaire to show that they have completed the necessary checks on their employees and prospective employees.

However, the paper documents are no longer needed and the whole process can be done completely online. By using the online questionnaire, employers can show they have done their due diligence and avoid a penalty if they are found to be employing illegal workers.

If the employee or prospective employee does not have a passport from the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland or other immigration documents that demonstrate a right to work, the questionnaire will direct the employer to the correct course of action.
