Visas Can Be Complex
An employee’s right to work could look different every six months, depending on their visa. Your valued employees who are not Australian citizens will have varying types of work visas. Details can differ in terms of:
- Conditions: they may only be allowed to work for specific industries or in specific regions
- Restrictions: they may only be permitted to work for a set number of hours, or once studies have begun.
- Duration: they may require reassessment after a given timeframe
And, of course, non-permanent visas have expiry dates. Without timely renewal, you could find yourself with illegal workers on your team and not even realise it.
VEVO is accurate but slow
The Australian Government’s VEVO (Visa Entitlement Verification Online) system is the only authority for checking a person’s right to work. Unfortunately, it presents hoops to jump through, like permissions and registration.
But checking a worker’s right to work is essential. The last thing you need is an infringement notice or penalty fine. Company fines can climb into tens of thousands of dollars per illegal worker.
What if there was an easier way?
Scantek is an Australian Government Gateway Service Provider, which means we have direct access to government databases for document verification. We can do Right to Work checks directly from the database. Our authorised access combined with digital processes is the easier way.
Automation simplifies screening
Our system is fully digital. Once we have your job candidate’s details, no human input is needed for authentication.
Here’s how that benefits you:
We’ve combined everything into one platform that checks and manages all the verifications you need to screen a person’s right to work.
Your job candidate is guided through easy steps via the Scantek app, and results are delivered to you within minutes.
Enjoy having screening task to follow up. Our app gathers all the information you need to know about a person’s identity and corresponding work visa, so that your onboarding decision becomes straightforward.
Records of completed verifications are stored in your management portal and are protected against tampering. Search functions and filter options help you review and track data easily.
If ever it’s called for, you have a time-, date- and person-stamped audit trail proving as evidence of your due diligence in Right to Work verifications.
How it works
Our app uses biometric data for verifying facts across all identity documents. Hundreds of micro-checks, create a tight web of scrutiny that identifies the red flags of an illegal worker.
