Proof of right to work in the UK


We have received a number of enquiries at CWU HQ regarding Royal Mail asking
individuals to complete a data gathering exercise which provides the necessary
information for individual’s proof of right to work in the UK.

A review of the existing files
in the current system has identified some that do not contain a copy of a document
providing the proof of right to work which Royal Mail Group (RMG) is legally required to
hold. The files are incomplete because between 1997 and 2004 there was an ambiguity
in the Home Office guidelines about performing and recording identity and proof of right
to work checks

In 2004 the Home Office provided guidance which clarified what
documents were acceptable to cover these requirements and how they should be
recorded. RMG has a legal obligation to collect this information.

The only employees affected are some of those recruited during the 1997/2004 time
period. Proof of right to work in the UK can be demonstrated by presentation of a
passport or a full UK birth/adoption certificate that is accompanied by a proof of national
insurance number. Although individual’s national insurance appear on their wage slip
the Home Office requires that this be proved independently.

We can assure all branches that there is no suggestion that any of the staff members
contacted have done or failed to do anything to cause this issue and all data provided
will of course be handled confidentially and in accordance with the data protection
requirements. Therefore branch representatives should inform members to comply with
this request.

Any enquiries should be addressed to Ray Ellis’s department, quoting reference
PTC/MA/dj/427.
