Step 5: If recruited, the employer manages the individual's term of employment
The employer checking service is a developing service that offers employers the opportunity to check the status of individuals to work in the United Kingdom.
The employer has a responsibility to check the employee's right to work at least once a year if the employee started work on or after 29 February 2008 and if his/her permission to stay in the United Kingdom is limited. You should refer to the Comprehensive Guidance document. The guidance documents can be accessed through the links in the right side of this page.
Where you are no longer satisfied that a current employee is entitled to work in the United Kingdom, we recommend seeking independent advice from a specialist in employment law before taking any further action.
