Are right to work checks becoming a bit of a headache for you? Since Brexit, and then COVID, it is likely you are carrying our more right to work checks than before and now that physical checks will be reinstated (from 1st Sept 2021) checking orginal documents for remote workers will be time consuming and possibly expensive if people have to travel to the office just for this check.

The Post Office is offering an In Branch Verification Service which means that as an employer you can register for this service or employees can simply get their documents certified at their local branch for £12.75.

This appers to be a great way to conduct these statutary checks, especially if you have large volumes spread accross the country.

More information can be found here:

If you have any experience of using this service, share it here and let us know what you think of it.
