Return to Work our RTW solution for a donation to charity

May 26, 2020

When we look at the return to work process there are many steps we need to consider. In my last blog we took a look at readiness to RTW. Your employees safety and mental health should be major considerations.

However, when you taking on new employees you do have to comply with the Home Office guidance for Right to Work.

Our RTW offer

For a donation to charity we are offering every employer one licence of uAuthenticate Mobile valid until December 2020. Our chosen charity is NHS Charities Together (registered charity no. 1186569)

All employers are under pressure during this period and uComply would like to help. To comply with the guidance can seem onerous. You need to follow the Home Office RTW guidance. Click here to see the full 40 pages of documentation. Adopt technology, use our RTW APP in your organisation.

What is the RTW guidance?

RTW simplified

The full RTW guidance asks that you:

  • See the original document and ensure that it is genuine
  • Tie the document/s to the individual, this can be using video.
  • Have proof that the checks were made, including a signature and date of the check

Perform these checks and you will get a Statutory Excuse against prosecution if the candidate is illegal.

The image to the left shows how, using a few steps, our technology could help you follow the RTW process. If you would like ensure you have full compliance why not take a look at uAuthenticate Mobile

During the COVID-19 outbreak there are temporary changes in place to the current home office guidance for RTW:

  • Ask the worker to submit a scanned copy or a photo of their original documents
  • Arrange a video call with the worker – ask them to hold up the original documents to the camera and check them against the digital copy of the documents presented
  • Record the date you made the check and mark it as “adjusted check undertaken on [insert date] due to COVID-19”

Once the COVID-19 period has ended you have 8 weeks to review the original documents.

This applies to all staff taken onboard during the current outbreak.

Our solution uAuthenticate Web will safely take you through this process and ensure you stay compliant with the RTW process. It will seamlessly dove-tail into our mobile solution to ensure any face to face checks are done in-line with the current guidance.
