Employers have a responsibility to ensure that each employee has the right to work before they commence working in the UK. By implementing the appropriate document check and controls, employers can help ensure they are complying with the Home Office rules.
The penalties for employing undocumented workers are high:
you can be jailed for up to 5 years and receive an unlimited fine if you knowingly employ an illegal worker
you can be be fined £20,000 per employee if you fail to complete the correct checks prior to employment
The reputation of a company can be damaged if a company receives a penalty for employing illegal workers. Therefore it is vital to ensure your organisation is complying with Home Office regulations and conducting the appropriate right to work checks.
We often work with companies to ensure they are conducting the correct checks prior to providing employment and follow-up checks where appropriate. If you would like advice and assistance on conducting the right to work checks, please contact us today.

My husband and I could never have navigated the spouse visa process without Qiyin. She is incredibly knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. I will absolutely be working with Qiyin in the future and recommend her highly. A massive thanks to her for making everything work out!
Very professional service providing information on documents I needed beforehand and answering questions via email. Then in person went through documents establishing gaps in the application and what further documents I should look to get hold of. Very comprehensive and very thorough. I believe the quality of the application and the speed with which QC put it together led to a decision from the home office within a month after submitting. Highly recommended!
I have been assisted by QC Immigration for my EEA Permanent Residence application. My case was not a standard one, with many interruptions in the presence in the UK due to my job. I have been guided through the difficult interpretation of the law to prepare and submit a robust application that was approved even more swiftly than the average normal times. I would highly recommend the services of QC Immigration.
Qiyin assisted my wife and I with a difficult visa transfer in an efficient, quick and cost-effective manner. She clearly outlined the process from the beginning, kept us fully informed through each step, and delivered our desired outcome at an incredibly reasonable cost. We would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
Qiyin was absolutely wonderful throughout the process of my spouse visa application. Her guidance and advice made the process very easy, and she worked very closely with me and my husband, addressing all our questions and concerns. Thanks to QC Immigration, we had no issues once our application was filed, and my visa was granted within 3 weeks!
Whilst a lot of my colleagues/friends’ EEA Permanent Residency applications were unsuccessful, my application was approved faster than the anticipated time (less than 6 months). This wouldn’t have been possible without QC Immigration’s team strong legal expertise, ability to predict potential complications and thoroughness. Their approach was very personable whilst always remaining professional. Thank you again for making this so easy within stressful times.
Excellent service. QC responded promptly, provided me with thorough, precise and easy to follow advice. Exactly what I needed when I was stressing about my daughter's citizenship status. Thank you so much.
