Understanding an employer’s obligations under the prevention of illegal working regime

Level: Basic – Intermediate

Description:

With the move toward digital immigration status, there have been some significant changes within the prevention of illegal working framework and to the process that employers need to follow to carry out right to work checks. Supporting businesses to remain compliant with their prevention of illegal working obligations is a key component of a business immigration lawyer’s day to day work and it is important that you are familiar with the requirements and the consequences of failing to carry out right to work checks correctly.

With this in mind, this session will take you through what employers need to know to ensure they remain compliant with their prevention of illegal working obligations. It will cover why right to work checks are important, the process for carrying out right to work checks and the consequences for employers if they fail to do so. It will address the employment law considerations that weigh into decision making in this area and how to manage instances of illegal working and dismissals. It will also touch on how the civil penalty scheme works when instances of illegal working arise.

We will also discuss as the implications of the phase out of biometric residence permits at the end of 2024.

Audience:

This course is designed for immigration and employment practitioners who advise employers on their prevention of illegal working obligations.
