Corporates - Right to Work and Employee Onboarding

Large corporates are facing increasing employment regulations. In organisations which have a diverse workforce spread across multiple locations, a high proportion of Non UK employees or a high staff turnover it can be logistically difficult to adhere to ‘Right to Work’ legislation. Failure to comply with legislation can lead to hefty fines of up to £20,000 per employee and a potential prison sentence for company directors

Due to a number of high-profile stories of ‘illegal workers’ in the media and with the Home Office now ‘naming and shaming’ companies in their quarterly lists, companies are becoming more concerned about their own screening and onboarding processes in order to protect their brand reputation. This is especially important to large corporates and banks where the risk of non-compliance is low, but the consequence of reputational damage (and knock-on effect on revenues) is serious. In some cases corporates may have grown by acquisitions, meaning they are managing a number of systems and processes that may be siloed internally, which in turn can lead to an incomplete picture of their employees.
