Legal to Work Here?
H
ow often do employers of all
sizes check if applicants have
the right to work here, and how
fail safe are their methods? With
fines of £20,000 per illegal worker or
imprisonment for the employer
lurking and over 8,400 producers of
fake documents in Europe, it is easy
for a busy recruiter to miss one fake
using traditional methods.
A new cloud based solution from
uComply provides your Firm with a
consistent process for Right to Work and
identifies the sophisticated fake
documents either on its mobile or laptop
system, for less than the price of a cup
of coffee per candidate. That’s a small
price to keep on the right side of the law
and avoid associated damage to your
business reputation.
uComply contains the Home Office’s
guidance process and lists all the
documents required by immigrants from
every country.
The interviewer taps in the country of
origin and the list of required paperwork
will appear so the interviewee can be
advised what is needed.
The system allows the interviewer to
take a photograph, save it on the cloud
and the candidate signs the screen to
allow storage of the documents. This
App scans documents, reads and saves
all data off a passport chip. Data is
easily retrieved from uComply’s
encrypted cloud solution. No other
system provides full Home Office
guidance checking and passport chip
reading.
The laptop version was developed for
the user interviewing large numbers of
candidates. It can plug in to the same
type of passport checker used at airports
and border crossings and can check a
passport for UV and Infrared readings.
All ID documents scanned are compared
against a document library.
Birkin Cleaning Services a large
southern cleaning contractor has used
uComply’s mobile version for 6 months.
CEO Paul Ashton says the system is
essential for recruitment. He said:
“uComply offers the widest range of
checks, the price is keen and the training
is superb.
It is easy to use, nonaggressive, does what it promises and
our managers love it.”
The uComply system is continuous.
Once employed, it emails alerts to the
employer to advise of expiring
documents like passports, VISA,
biometric cards, country ID cards, ECS
check and driving licence.
A pre-Brexit influx of immigrant workers
is imminent. Isn’t it time you added a
few more real checks to your system?
