Why should recruiters care about Right to Work checks? Tony Machin, CEO at TrustID, looks at how technology could help. He notes that the statistics on illegal working are compelling: there were 600 illegal working penalties in Q3 2017 alone, totaling more than 9 million in fines. In addition, the market for illegal documents continues to thrive with counterfeit passports, ID cards and biometric residence permits often difficult to manually identify without advanced training. And more, ensuring and demonstrating compliance is also key to protect the reputation of the organization, as high-profile immigration arrests are hugely damaging to the associated brand.
