Almost half of businesses are unprepared for changes to right to work checks coming in on 1 October 2022, according to a survey by digital identity company Xydus.

The company, which is on the government’s list of certified identity service providers (IDSPs), found that 48% of businesses were unprepared for the new arrangements, which require employers who wish to check someone’s right to work digitally to do so using Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT).

Employers that do not follow the new guidance could face civil penalties of up to £20,000 per worker or even a custodial sentence if they are found to have employed an illegal worker without the proper checks.

Although many are unprepared for the changes, 96% are aware of them, Xydus found. More than three-quarters (78%) were not aware they could face jail if non-compliant.

Our in-house Employment Lawyer Matthew Brain will discuss what is required to conduct a right-to-work check properly.

This workshop is useful for HR professionals and employees undertaking new starter processes in organisations.

The workshop will be run virtually on Teams on Thursday 6th October 2022 at 10am and is free to attend.
