From 1st October, employers will be asked to use certified Identity Service Providers (IDSPs) in order to complete digital right to work checks for all British and Irish passport holders, as an alternative to undertaking the manual checks.
IDSPs will conduct the digital checks on behalf of employers for a set fee. In practice, employers will submit digital images of personal documents for processing using Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT), rather than copying original documentation.
IDVT are forms of technology that can assist employers to establish the authenticity of documents presented for identity verification purposes, which is a vital part to the onboarding stages.
