UK employers must complete a Right to Work check on each employee's first day, with a potential penalty of £20,000 for each compliance failure, not to mention the reputational damage where an illegal worker is found.
Even a single failure can result in potential fines, with the added risk that your Immigration sponsor licence may be revoked. High employee turnover rates, averaging 5-15% in many industries, result in large employers performing hundreds of these checks each year. As the UK exits the EU, the ability to identify workers country of origin will become even more of a priority.
