Employer document checks to prevent illegal workingFriday, December 10th, 2010
The UK Border Agency, on 2 November 2010, published an updated version of its detailed guidance for employers on preventing illegal working. A summary version of the guidance has now been published. Although it lists all of the various documents that employers must examine in order to protect themselves against criminal conviction or civil penalty for employing illegal immigrant workers, it does not provide pictures of the documents. Both the detailed and summary guidance should be used together.
