We’ll aim to verify UK right to work status digitally wherever possible. When digital verification is not successful, we will request proof of right to work in the UK from the candidate.
When right to work has been verified digitally, we will provide a report which provides statutory excuse against liability for a civil penalty in the event of illegal working if Home Office guidance has been followed (see Employers' right to work checklist - GOV.UK).
If a Home Office immigration status share code is provided, we will provide the profile page confirming the individual’s right to work. See Employers' right to work checklist - GOV.UK for further information.
Where other evidence of right to work is provided, we will review and provide advice on what action is required to obtain statutory excuse against liability for a civil penalty in the event of illegal working.
