Employers must complete a Right to Work immigration check on each new employee. With a potential penalty for each compliance failure, not to mention the reputational damage where an illegal worker is found, employers everywhere are looking for ways to improve as well as streamline processes - in the UK and around the globe.
Even a single failure can result in potential fines, with the added risk that your Immigration sponsor licence could be revoked. High employee turnover rates, averaging 5-15% in many industries, result in large employers performing thousands of these checks each year. As the UK exits the EU, the ability to identify a workers country of origin will become even more of a priority in this country, but similarly tightening of immigration rules in other territories will increase the pressure to get this right from the outset.
With an increasingly flexible and mobile workforce, complying with government mandated checks can present many challenges - even more so in the current remote working climate:
With unique biometric technology and facial recognition capability, our Right to Work app prevents identity fraud, performs checks instantly, and allows you to upload data immediately to your HR system. The checks are fully compliant with government guidance in the territory of use (such as UK Home Office requirements), ensuring your compliance records are up to date in the event of an audit.
