Book your free initial call

    We endeavour to make an initial response to all enquiries within 24 hours but please be aware that on some occasions due to prior commitments or volume of calls we will not be able to respond in that time frame. We also operate a 48 hour return policy. This return policy means that if we have not responded with 48 hours of your initial enquiry we are unable to do so due to current workloads and we will destroy your data accordingly. This policy ensures you are not left waiting and have the certainty that your data is not compromised. In most instances however we are able to make contact within a 24 hour time frame. Please note our free initial advice service is available to clients at our total discretion and if your case is of a complex nature we may not be able to offer you a free consultation. However in these instances we will advise you what the charge would be for an initial fixed fee consultation.

Temporary changes were previously put in place to the process for checking individual rights to work in response to the global pandemic. More specifically, it has been difficult to carry out the traditional in-person checks due to social distancing. Measures were introduced on 30th March 2020 to temporarily allow employers to conduct right to work checks remotely. It was anticipated that these changes would end on 31st August 2021 but we now have confirmation that the end date for the temporary adjusted checks will be deferred to 5th April 2022. Further guidance as to the temporary changes in place can be found on the Government website. It is anticipated that there will be a new long term digital solution for right to work checks in the future.
