Right to Work Check FAQs
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.
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.
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.
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.
Everyone else, including British citizens with expired passports or those without a passport.
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.
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.
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.
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.
