Identity Checking Service
Manacor International conducts detailed identity checks via paperwork submitted online to confirm Passports, Biometric Residence Permits, Visas and Driving Licences. We take this data in accordance with the latest identity checking guidelines as detailed by the Home Office | Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Although we can conduct I.D. confirmation via video link, if the original documents are supplied to us, we recommend that these documents are confirmed by our clients in the first instance.
Once documentary evidence for an individual is firmly established our team can then validate their name and address exists on the Electoral Roll and within associated credit reports by checking when they first appeared, and how many times, they have been referenced at any given address. To complete our exhaustive identity check we then verify the candidates date of birth, any previous addresses and bank or credit account information held by our partner credit reference agency.
International Identity Checks
Should our clients require, we can conduct an International Identity check which verifies name, address and date of birth information from over 135 countries worldwide.
Right to Work Validation
According to the latest guidelines supplied by the UK VISA and Immigration service, an employer can be sent to jail for 5 years and pay an unlimited fine if found guilty of employing someone who they knew or had ‘reasonable cause to believe’ didn’t have the right to work in the UK.
This includes, for example, if you had any reason to believe that:
- they didn’t have leave (permission) to enter or remain in the UK
- their leave had expired
- they weren’t allowed to do certain types of work
- their papers were incorrect or false
An organisation can also be penalised if they employ someone who doesn’t have the right to work and they did not conduct the correct checks or complete them properly. This can result in a civil penalty (fine) of up to £20,000 for each illegal work.
Identity checks are included with our credit checking service and can be combined at a discount with our DBS criminal disclosure and 5-year employment history referencing services. Please contact us immediately to discuss your requirements.
