What could be easier?

  • Right to Work compliance
  • Anti-slavery, FCA & KYE compliance
  • TUPE compliance
  • GDPR compliance
Right to Work compliance

Rightcheck delivers compliance with UK Home Office legislation that requires Right to Work checks are conducted on all employees – regardless of their nationality or immigration status. Rightcheck distills all 40 plus pages of Home Office guidance into an easy to use, intuitive app that this auto-updated whenever there is a change to legislation. Rightcheck also ensure the checks are stored and managed for the requisite duration of employment plus 2 year’s post employment.

Anti-slavery, FCA & KYE compliance

Rightcheck delivers compliance with the Modern Slavery Act guidance, Know Your Employee (KYE) best practice and FCA requirements that require employers undertake ‘proof of address’ checks. Rightcheck includes logic that guides the user through the necessary documents to review and capture.

TUPE compliance

Rightcheck delivers compliance with the obligation on the new employer to validate Right to Work checks on employees acquired through TUPE transfers. Rightcheck makes it an easy process to conduct these checks efficiently in volume within the allowable 60 day ‘grace-period’ from the date of the transfer.

GDPR compliance

Rightcheck delivers GDPR compliance providing a digital, secure repository for all Right to Work checks undertaken and supporting documentation. With Rightcheck you are assured that both the check process and check management process is undertaken in full accordance with the GDPR regulations

What the law requires 

Every employer, regardless of size, has a responsibility to perform Right to Work checks on any individual they intend to employ to ensure they have a legal right to work in the UK. This is regardless of race, ethnicity or nationality (applying to UK/European citizens alongside any other nationality). The Right to Work checks must be conducted prior to the commencement of employment and any work undertaken by the individual on behalf of the employer. This applies to any full-time, part-time, or contract role.


Before May 2014, it was satisfactory to simply date photocopies of relevant identification papers and file them away. Now the only way to establish a statutory excuse is to demonstrate that the Right to Work checks have been correctly carried out and proof retained. 

An employer found to be employing an individual who does not legally have the right to work in the UK, could incur a fine of up to £20,000 per employee unless the employer has a statutory excuse.

What this means in practice

Since May 2014 Right to Work checks comprise a number of steps, including documents that must be correctly reviewed, signed and attested. There must be a record of the check with associated documents stored for audit purposes (including an obligation to keep records for 2 years after an employee leaves). Furthermore, for certain circumstances, the Right to Work checks must be repeated at appropriate stages during employment.
