Employee Verification Checks

By: In2Accounting

There are a variety of Employee Verifications you may need to do, or in some cases you may not need any. However, it is recommended that at the very least Work References be requested.

The verifications you choose to do will depend largely on the industry you operate in and your attitude toward the risk of hiring a new employee.

For example, working with children or the elderly will require a mandatory CRB check. You can learn more about CRB checks and get started on it here>

Checking whether your employee has the legal right to work in the UK is your responsibility  and the consequences of not being vigilant about this could lead to fines of up to £10000 or worse.
