What does it check?

Verifile will obtain copies of appropriate identity documents from the candidate. Using our expert knowledge of Home Office rules, we will audit these documents to verify their right to work in the UK.

This is a conditional check as the employer will only have obtained a statutory excuse against prosecution once they have checked the original documents in the presence of the candidate. Additionally, our technology analyses scanned copies of documents to validate authenticity where possible; looks for signs that the document has been compromised; and checks against a database of lost and stolen passports.
