In the UK, under the Right to Work Act, employers are legally required to check whether a person has the right to work in the UK before employing them. They must do this by checking the validity of personal identification documents and having them verified, either in person or by a software package, such as Indigo Group’s Credas. You can receive a civil penalty if you have not carried out the right checks and employ an illegal worker.
