R2W App

Revolutionise your right to work process

App-based right to work checking system

With effect from 12 July 2016, under section 21 of the 2006 Act (as amended by section 35 of the 2016 Act), an employer commits an offence if they employ an illegal worker and knows or has reasonable cause to believe that the person has no right to do the work in question.

In addition to prison for the criminal offence, a civil penalty of £20,000 can be imposed on any employer of an illegal worker which failed to carry out statutory checks.

The solution you need to ensure compliance

We worked with the immigration law and technology teams at KPMG LLP to create an app-based right to work checking system to support businesses in ensuring their compliance with Home Office/Immigration Service requirements. The app guides managers through the correct documents required to provide the business with the statutory excuse as well as taking away the need to photocopy documents.
The system allows for all documentation to be held in a central repository and provides storage of signed authorities to retain the documents for right to work purposes.

How does it work?

The app details the documentary requirements depending on individual circumstances at the time of interview and captures copies of the documents and a signed confirmation of the check. Once submitted, the documentation is retained in a central repository so it can be checked by either your team or our specialist agents, providing an additional layer of assurance and governance with rejected checks being communicated back to the app of the recruiting manager.
