Right to Work in the UK
Eligibility to Work in the UK
We make checks to establish that a worker has the right to work in the UK.
We request a copy of the passport for the right to work. Where the passport does not show an automatic right to work you will obtain copies of the relevant work permits.
We also request a copy of a bank statement and utility bill, within the last 3 months, to further verify they are who they say and at the address provided.
Our checks are also designed to highlight potential employees from countries outside of the EEA and to ensure appropriate work permits and visas are in place.
We always obtain these documents via a secure communication process.
