When it comes to identity checks using MSite right to work check software functionality, the MSite technology that we provide is the leading virtual system for businesses to use, and it has proven particularly useful for construction firms who have large, varied and often-changing teams of employees. Here, we explain how the identity check systems work and how they can benefit your company.
Right to Work Check Software
To begin with, the identity checks using Msite right to work software will include all of the basic details about employees that a company would require. Aside from their name and address, it includes their employment history, passport/background information (in the event that they had previously lived outside of the UK) and both their general and emergency contact details. This allows team managers to learn a little about their workforce in minimal time, and to understand their previous experiences a little more. It also means that they have their phone number and email address so that they can get hold of them at short notice, whether they are working on-site or not.
Going back to the passport information, including this as part of the identity check covers the organisation in the event that an employee is found to be ineligible to live or work in the UK. Of course, these background checks will have been carried out anyway prior to hiring the employees, but on occasion, things slip through the cracks and mistakes are made. It also means that the identity check might highlight any problems with passport/national insurance so that the company can handle the matter internally, whether that be helping the staff member in question to renew their visas or whether it is something further. In any event, many construction firms have international workforces (especially on large projects), so this is a key feature to make sure that everybody on-site has the legal right to be there.
The identity checks also record attendances of staff on site. This is crucial in the event of an accident taking place, because the company can then determine who was there at the time, and garner valuable facts from there. If they were present and it wasn’t recorded, or alternatively if a paper-copy attendance sheet incorrectly labelled an employee as being there, it could lead to major implications for the organisation. The attendance listings as part of the identity checks prevent this due to their reliability and quick turnaround. Although it is not a situation that employers want to find themselves in, this also explains why emergency contact details are included within the system, so that family or friends can be contacted very quickly should the worst thing happen and a major accident take place.
So, identity checks form a big part of the MSite technology, and their benefits are of great significance to the construction employers, both in the short-term and long-term, as they help to cover several bases should any hypothetical situations actually come to life.
