Samar Shams featured in Employment Law Journal on right-to-work checks and balancesPosted: 10 Oct 2022
Covid-19 meant adjusted processes for right-to-work checks and these are now coming to an end.
Checking digital copies of original documents shown during a video call ends on 30 September 2022 with the Home Office implementing ‘identity service providers’ (IDSPs).
Employers will be able to conduct manual checks on documents, use a share-code system or engage an IDSP to check an individual’s right to work.
In an article first published in the October issue of Employment Law Journal, Immigration and Global Mobility Partner Samar Shams explains which checking processes employers need to use now for UK and non-UK nationals, noting that: "If an employer conducts a right-to-work check in the manner dictated by the Home Office, it can establish a statutory excuse against being liable for a penalty should it be discovered that the individual does not have the right to work."
