Right to Work Check FAQs

How is the candidate guided through the digital journey using identity verification technology?

Throughout the journey, candidates are provided with real-time prompts and advice on how to provide documents and how to go through the likeness check. This includes guidance on how to take a high quality image, allowing us to confirm their identity more quickly. 

Candidates using a computer will have an option to upload pictures of  their documents directly from their computer. There is also the option to continue the request on a mobile device, even if they have started the process on a desktop.

Who will be able to go through the online checking sharecode service?

The service is only available to non-British and non-Irish passport holders. For example, anyone who falls under the EU Settlement Scheme, anyone who has a UK Visas and Immigration account, a Biometric Residence Permit, Biometric Residence Card or Visa. Basically, we can check anyone who can provide us with their sharecode.

What is the process for Digital ID for the candidate?

During their HooYu journey, candidates will need to provide their explicit consent for Veremark to use and process their data. They will be asked to turn on their video camera to establish their likeness and they will be asked to upload one or two documents, depending on their situation and the checks that have been ordered.

What is GPG45 and what do the different levels mean?

GPG stands for Good Practice Guide and is the core guidance on Digital Identity. It sits within the Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework

GPG45 sets out four levels of confidence in terms of proof of identity. These are:

  • low confidence (Not used)
  • medium confidence (RTW & Basic DBS)
  • high confidence (Standard DBS & Enhanced DBS)
  • very high confidence (Not used)

In the main, we are delivering Medium Level Confidence Journeys, and High Level Confidence Journeys. Medium Journeys can be used for RTW checks.

Who will not be able to go via the Digital ID route?

Everyone else, including British citizens with expired passports or those without a passport.

Who will be able to get a Digital ID check?

Only candidates who are able to provide a valid (in-date) passport issued by the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland are to get a digital ID check.

What happens if you don't do a right to work check?

If you hire an illegal worker and do not properly verify their permission to work, you could be subject to a civil penalty. If you are found guilty of hiring someone who you knew or had "reasonable grounds to suspect" did not have the right to work in the UK, you could receive a 5-year prison sentence and an unlimited fine.

What happens after you place an order?

‍Once you have provided the contact details for your candidate we will email them and ask them to visit our secure portal to complete a quick form providing the necessary information to start the check.

Results will be emailed to you immediately, unless during the ordering process you specify that you prefer to download the results from our platform. In that case we will send you login details to access.

When should a RTW check be carried out?

Before a new employee begins their job, a company must conduct a compliant right to work check. Failure to conduct the process correctly can result in jail time or penalties.

Background Check FAQ's

What background check do I need?
This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.
Why should employers check the background of potential employees?
Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.
How long do background checks take?
Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.
Can you do a background check online?
All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.
What are the benefits of a background check?
In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.
What does a background check show?
Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
