An employer is excused from liability for a civil penalty if they show that they have complied with the prescribed right to work checks. There are no categories of statutory excuse.

The civil penalty regime and right to work checks are set out in the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, secondary legislation and published statutory codes of practice and guidance.
