Recording the right to work in the UK - Very Costly Mistake!
I have noticed recently that some clients have not been writing a signed statement when taking copies of proof of right to work in the UK for new workers and just dating the photocopy of the passport or other appropriate documents submitted.  This is important because the Home Office say that simply adding a date without the signed statement is not considered to be confirmation that the check was undertaken on that date.

It may seem like a small detail, but could cost your business £20k per employee if any are found to be working illegally and your paperwork is not in accordance with their expectations!
I have updated my guidance on how to check an individual's right to work in the UK. If you would like a free copy, please get in touch.  Similarly if you have any questions about this or any other HR issue, please contact me.
