About this course

This course was published in March 2024.

Over the years, employers of migrants have faced an ever-increasing battery of penalties for failing to carry out right to work checks and other duties outsourced to them by the Home Office. Possible consequences include fines, closure of businesses and even criminal prosecution.

With this in mind, this short course will take you through the key areas where employers will most often need help and advice: completing compliant right to work checks and specific actions they can take to the prevent illegal working. It is designed for immigration representatives who are new to this area and would like to get a handle on the basics.
