Right to Work documentation

Following the series of documents recently published by Home Office in their campaign to prevent illegal working, two important documents emerged last week  which are a must have for any employer. The first is the employers guide to acceptable right to work documents providing very useful advice on the documentation which are acceptable in conducting rights to work checks. Helpfully, it also provides images of the various visa's / residence permits issued by Home Office and explains the various types of immigration statuses held by people.

The second is the Statutory Excuse Check sheet  which

  • tells employers how to seek a defence
  • includes acceptable documents needed to establish a continuous statutory excuse. It includes the summary version of the acceptable documents. Lists A & B.
