Right to Work Checks

A right to work check should be carried out to validate if the person you are going to employee has the right to work in the UK. The Home Office legislation states that you can be fined up to £20,000 per person for each member of staff who is found to not have the full right to work in the UK.

Introducing the Right to Work App

We know just how costly and time consuming it can be to conduct right to work checks, trying to make sure your results are accurate, up to date and are abiding to immigration and GDPR legislation. Which is why we have created the Right to Work App. A handy online tool that gives you peace of mind that your checks identify people who don’t have the right to work in the UK and are compliant with UK law.

How can the Right to Work App help you?


No paperwork

Everything is safely stored digitally in the Right to Work Portal.


Less training

The step by step guide makes sure all users are following the same process.


Document clarity

The app will tell you exactly what documentation is required for each individual.


Re-check alerts

Let you know three months before re-checks are needed for employees who don’t have a permanent right to work in the UK.



Updates to the system will be made as and when legislation changes.


On the go

No signal? No problem, documents are stored securely for several hours after a check until you do.



The app will advise when to delete archived checks on employees who have left your business, as required by immigration and the GDPR legislation.


Statutory Excuse

Our checks help you to meet the Home Office guidelines required for a statutory excuse.

“Over 250 hiring managers at Experian are actively using the Right to Work App. Before we started using it we had to make appointments for every candidate to attend an appointment with HR, so we could complete their right to work checks – it was so time consuming. Now the brilliant app gives me and my team the confidence to roll out the responsibility of completing the check to the hiring manager, making the experience quicker and easier for the candidate, HR and hiring manager”
