Border Control Agency Increases its Spot Checks

September 26, 2013 - In Uncategorized

Employers have been aware that since the amendment on 1st May 2004 to the Asylum & Immigration Act 1996, all new employees must have their Right to Residency & Right to Work checked before commencing work.

As a reminder this entails checking the new employee’s Passport or Birth Certificate plus official documentation showing their National Insurance Number and keeping a photocopy of the originals on the personal file. These records can be checked at anytime without warning by the Border Control Agency and hefty fines imposed for each person to be found working illegally.

Your processes should also include reminders for those people working under Work Permits or Visas, as when they expire, so may the workers right to remain.
