Identity Document Checking with an Expert’s Eye.

Restaurant Tech Live blog post 1 Restaurant Tech Live blog post 4

Does your business take a risk every time it carries out a Right to Work check?

No one is perfect we are all capable of making the odd mistake. Most mistakes tend to be small and easily rectified, others can be just as small but also very costly.

Carrying out fully compliant identity document checks for right to work purposes is one of the biggest day to day risks a modern business faces. If one of your team makes that small mistake your business can face a penalty of up to £20,000 per illegal worker.

Carrying out these checks places a huge amount of responsibility on the person or persons within the business whose task this is.  

That person may be a Director or a Manager but more often than not it is an HR Assistant or someone out in the field.

They have to ensure every time they carry out these checks that they take the correct documents, check if they are both genuine and applicable, date them and store them correctly. 

They have to check if the person is student, have they got minimum hours required, are they ok to work in this type of role, does the document expire, is it a forgery. The list goes on.

If the business takes on high volumes of new starters it’s only a matter of time before that small yet extreme costly mistake is made and all of this has to be done before you actually employ the person.

We can help your business and its teams by providing them with an expert’s eye.
