Prevention of Illegal Working
Every employer in the UK is required by law to check that their employees have a right to work in the UK regardless of their nationality. This process is called the right to work check. An employer breaching this requirement can face civil and criminal charges (a fine up to £20,000 per illegal worker and up to 5 years imprisonment).

Our audit includes reviewing existing employees’ files, training the staff in charge of recruitment on how to conduct a proper right to work check, understanding the company’s legal duties, recommendations on improvements and more.
