Guides to assist employers with the new immigration system
The Home Office has published literature to assist employers with recent changes to the UK immigration system. A further guide, An employer's guide to acceptable right to work documents, has been produced. The guide explains document checks which employers should conduct in order to establish whether an individual can legally carry out the work being offered and it provides examples of accepted documents for proving the right to work.
The Home Office has also produced a Right to Work Checklist and a Statutory Excuse Checksheet to assist employers with the recruitment process, along with a list of frequently asked questions about the illegal working civil penalty scheme.
