A vital process that needs to be done absolutely correctly, vetting staff prior to employment can be extremely complex and fraught with risk. Making the complex simple, Timegate's Recruitment Pack delivers all that is required for a compliant vetting process along with a reduction in time and motion on this intense business process.

Timegate's Recruitment Pack automates all aspects of the screening process, enabling you to send and track documents (such as reference documents, proof of ID, proof of address and right to work) simply and with complete transparency, enabling your organisation to screen staff and maintain employee records to the required standard. Once the file is complete, Timegate will let you initiate a number of checks, including Credit Checks and Criminal Records.

IMPORTANT: Some of these services are provided by third parties.

Costs and risks of failed processes

Employers are responsible for making the necessary document checks, even if they think a potential worker has the right to work. It is vital for the employer’s own protection to keep a record and copy of documents that have been checked.

If a company is found to be employing illegal migrant workers in the UK and has not established a ‘statutory excuse’, they may have to pay a civil penalty of up to £10,000 per illegal migrant worker*. There is also the risk of being prosecuted for the offence of knowingly employing an illegal migrant worker. Conviction for this offence can incur an unlimited fine and/or a prison sentence of up to two years.

Addressing legal obligations to check that a potential employee has the right to work, Timegate can be configured to check potential employees against any other standard(s) required. Collecting, collating and storing key documentation, Timegate provides immediate confirmation that recruitment and placement on contract can proceed.
