Employers must be aware of their duties when considering employing workers
from overseas. Not only is it important to follow the correct procedures
and checks to ensure that an overseas worker is legally entitled to work in
the UK, but businesses must also avoid discriminating against prospective
employees on the basis of their nationality or ethnic origin.
All offers of employment must be subject to the candidate providing the
employer with the required original documents demonstrating the right to
work in the UK, or the employer being able to carry out a check on the Home
Office online right to work checking service:
If it is established that the prospective employee or employee does not
have the right to work in the UK, employment may be terminated.
