What is “Appropriate” Validation?
As an Employer or Recruitment Agency, you must ensure that prospective workers are eligible to work in the UK before their employment commences. By doing this, you establish a ‘statutory excuse’ against being liable to pay a fine (known as a ‘civil penalty’) for employing an illegal worker.
In order to provide statutory excuse against liability employers must verify document authenticity, this can be established easily with VALIDATE.
