Employers have a legal obligation to prevent illegal working in the UK, and the penalties for not checking an employee's right to work can be costly. (As of Dec 2014 they may be liable for a fine of £20,000). Employers are required to screen new and existing employee s for their right to work, and are required to ensure that everyone in their organisation has the required clearance for working in the UK.

As part of the service that Contego provides, the system can check a BRP (Biometric Residence Permit) of potential employees before they are on-boarded. Using a front and back scan of the BRP the user can upload to our platform and receive a real-time verification. Contego interprets, scores and displays the results of this check in our simple to use interface.

Contego’s cloud-based platform is fully secure, and allows for encrypted storage of all sensitive data, providing peace of mind with regard to its security and compliance processes. To find out more about how Contego can help your ID verification contact:
