It has become very essential to do the RIGHT TO WORK CHECKS if one is employing the non-EU Immigrant work force or Employee.

It gives the Employers the access 24 hours online for up-to-date and real time information about migrant's right to work and making it easier for both to know their rights and proves that the migrant is eligible to work and how many hours of allowance to them with complete guidance related to your questions.

Right to work is Free and secure to use online unlike the previous paper based services where you need to send the documentations to Home Office and wait for their response.

These changes will mean that the Employers can use the Online Servies to demonstrate that they have carried out the Rights to work checks for their Immigrant Employees and can avoid the penalties in future if found employing theillegal immigrants. This services is Voluntary for Employers as well as for individuals to check.

It is also good for the immmigrant, who can use the online document checking service to demonstrate their right to work in the UK.

News Story from The Gaurdian; 25th Oct 2018
The home secretary has apologised to migrants – including to Afghan nationals who worked for the British armed forces and Gurkha soldiers – who were forced to provide DNA samples under the government’s hostile environment agenda. Migrants seeking to live and work in the UK on the basis of a family relationship can choose to provide DNA to prove a relationship to support an application. But Sajid Javid told the House of Commons that in June it became apparent that the provision of DNA evidence had been made a requirement and was “not simply a request” in a number of family visa applications.
“Today I want to take this opportunity to apologise to those who have been affected by this process,” Javid said.
Javid said he had set up a new taskforce for anyone who felt they had been wrongly required to provide DNA evidence for an immigration application. The home secretary said the issue came to light over the summer and an internal review was immediately ordered. The review had finished but there was further work to to be done to establish the scale of the problem, Javid said. “But regardless of the numbers of the people that have been affected, one case is one too many,” he said. “I’m determined to get to the bottom of how and why in some cases people can be compelled to supply DNA evidence in the first place.” The majority of cases identified were part of a Home Office operation, which started in April 2016, to clamp down on alleged fraud in some family and human rights immigration applications. Letters sent as part of the operation incorrectly stated that the applicant had to provide DNA evidence and that not providing such information without a reasonable excuse would lead to their application being refused on suitability grounds. Javid said 83 applications were refused, including seven refused solely for the failure to provide DNA evidence. A further six appear to have been refused for failure to provide DNA evidence where this was not the sole reason. In addition, the home secretary said the illegal requirement to provide DNA had been been applied to Gurkha soldiers and Afghan nationals who had worked for the UK government. In January 2015, a scheme was expanded to allow adult dependent children of Gurkhas discharged before 1997 to settle in the UK, Javid said. Guidance was published that stated that DNA evidence might be required and that applications could be refused if that evidence was not provided without reasonable excuse within four weeks. “This published guidance was wrong and has now been updated,” Javid said, adding that there were 51 cases identified where DNA evidence was requested from applicants at their own cost. There were four cases from the same family who had their application refused solely because they did not provide DNA evidence. In 2013, applications from Afghan nationals formerly employed by the UK government to resettle in the UK were welcomed. But the terms of the scheme included mandatory DNA testing for family groups paid for by the UK government, Javid said. Current investigations suggest that no one making an application under this scheme has been refused because they did not take a DNA test, he said. “Nonetheless mandatory testing should not have been part of this scheme and this requirement has now been removed,” the home secretary added.
“In particular I would like to extend my apology to the Gurkhas and Afghans that have been affected. The two schemes I’ve described were put in place to help the families of those who have served to keep our country safe. I’m sorry that demands were made of them that should never have been.
