How important is it to learn the working practices of Right to Work?
Home Office regulations apply to all employees - even people who have lived in the UK all their lives. The worst thing an employer can do is bury its head in the sand when it comes to dealing with 'Right to Work' checks.
What are the penalties for failing the checks?
The maximum civil penalty for each individual who does not have the right to work in the UK is a substantial £20,000. The penalty is given to the employer.
It is therefore crucial that employers and HR staff are equipped with the knowledge, skills and support required to ensure their organisation remains compliant.
Who should attend this event?
This free event will be of interest to all types of business owners, HR managers, recruitment managers, hospitality venues, restaurants, care and nursing homes, employers of overseas workers, nominated company authorising officers.
