A new version of the code of practice for Employers comes into effect from January 22, 2024 with significantly increased penalties. As employers, it’s crucial to understand your responsibilities in preventing illegal working in the UK.
This code has been issued alongside guidance for employers setting out how to conduct right to work checks and how the Home Office administers the civil penalty scheme. You should refer to the new code of practice alongside: ‘An employer’s guide to right to work checks’.
Stay informed and ensure your business operates within the legal framework. Read the full code of practice here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/6554d9d8046ed400148b9970/E03016066_COP_Preventing_Illegal_Working_Accessible.pdf
