A comprehensive no-jargon course for new-to-the-role and line managers wanting to upskill

Covid, staff and recruitment challenges have left many HR professionals feeling out of their depth or in dire need of reskilling. To meet this need, we have designed a  comprehensive, no-jargon introduction to checking RTW: everything you need to know but had no idea where to go.

The pandemic saw a bewildering number of changes to the RTW checking process, as a result, many employers are now unsure of the process and how to ensure they are fully compliant.

You are legally obliged to check the legal working status of your employees

All employers are legally obliged to check Right to Work status for potential employees and have a responsibility to prevent illegal working. Illegal working impacts negatively on lawful wages and is linked to organised crime, tax evasion and modern slavery. Failure to comply can result in potential invalidation of insurance, criminal prosecution, revocation of sponsorship licenses and irreparable reputational damage.

Why train with us

Drawing on our decades of experience and feedback from our delegates and trainers, this information-packed three-hour update is a perfect solution to ensure your staff feel confident to tackle the potentially confusing process of RTW checking.
