Right to Work

Does your candidate have the right to work for your business?

Right to work checks provides employers with piece of mind that candidates are legally allowed to work. Our services provide verification of the candidates visa or residency status to legally work within the country.

What is a Right to Work check?

A right to work check is a check to ensure that every individual you hire is legally eligible to work under your nation’s laws. It is an employer’s responsibility to conduct this check, and allowing an unlawful non-citizen to work may result in imprisonment or fines depending on the severity of the breach. These penalties may also apply to companies who refer someone, e.g. recruitment agencies.

Our right to work checks are provided to give you confidence in your hiring decisions and peace of mind when hiring a new candidate. Get in touch with us today to obtain a free quote.

Why conduct a Right to Work check?

There are many reasons why employers should conduct a right to work check:

  • Ensure your liability and risk is minimised by confirming that all your employees are eligible to work for your business.
  • Protect your business from potential legal ramifications (fines and possible imprisonment depending on the severity of the breach) if found that your employees are not eligible to work.
  • Screening your prospective candidates will save you time and money in the long run by understanding from the outset whether the candidate is suitable for the role.
  • Candidates and employees who are not upfront about their visa and working entitlements may indicate a lack of integrity in their working behaviour.

Who should conduct Right to Work checks?

All businesses should conduct right to work checks as part of a comprehensive employment screening process. With globalisation and increasing numbers of workers from all around the world, ensure your business is protected by conducting the necessary right to work checks.

When should you conduct a Right to Work check?

We recommend conducting right to work checks when hiring prospective employees. Right to work checks should form part of any company’s pre-employment screening as it is an essential part of understanding the candidate and whether it is safe to employ the candidate in your business.
