Employer Checking Service - Self Certification

Self Certifications are run internally by each department, organised through their responsible Digital Leader. The Digital Leader will certify the service meets the Digital by Default service standard criteria. The Self Certification process is currently in Alpha, and will continue to be iterated on. Services with over 100,000 transactions a year will continue to be assessed by GDS.

The Employers Checking Service will be an online tool where employers can check their employees and potential employee’s right to work in the UK and can request a right to work check should it be required.
