Your organisation may face a range of tough sanctions if you are found to be employing individuals who do not have the appropriate right to work for you.

You can avoid this by ensuring full right to work checks are conducted. We provide specialist advice on the range of illegal working offences and how to avoid them, also how to respond if you fall foul. Following a slow-down during the pandemic, the Home Office has resumed compliance visits and the latest official figures already show a big rise in penalties too.
