It has never been more important to protect your business and ensure you have robust right to work processes in place

The temporary adjusted Right to work checks, as part of the response to COVID-19, ended on 30th September 2022. These changes allowed recruiters to conduct Right to work checks face to face, or remotely.

What is the risk to me?

The UK Government have announced that businesses that fail to comply with the UK’s Right to Work obligations will see the maximum civil penalty (fines) they can receive increase by over 75%. Therefore it has never been more important to protect your business and ensure you have robust processes in place.

  • For a business’s first breach of the rules, the fine will increase from £20,000 to £45,000 per illegal worker.
  • For businesses with recurring violations, if they are identified as hiring illegal workers beyond the first penalty, their fines will escalate to £60,000 for each illegal employee.
