UK updates right to work guidance for employers

On February 28, the UK Home Office released updated guidance regarding right to work (RTW) checks to be conducted by employers. This guidance introduces updates and clarifications to the RTW procedures resulting from the ongoing digitalization of the UK’s border and immigration system. By conducting RTW checks in line with the relevant guidance and code of practice, employers can establish a statutory excuse against a civil penalty in the event they are found to have employed someone who is not eligible to carry out the work in question due to their immigration status.
