Time: 12:00pm - 12:30pm

Is your organisation ready for the changes coming to digital identity checks in October? Join Reed Screening Director Keith Rosser for a lunchtime masterclass as he provides an in-depth look into the changes to digital identity checking and what this means for your business.


The way ID verification is managed for new hires in the UK is changing from 1 October, and many businesses are both unaware of the new requirements and unprepared for the changes they will need to make.

Going forward, Covid-adjusted checks will not be valid, meaning employers will no longer be able to verify a candidate’s ID remotely using visual checks online, and will instead need to use a certified Identity Service Provider (IDSP) to provide Home Office-approved digital identity checks.

Join us for a lunchtime masterclass with Director of Reed Screening Keith Rosser, who will be providing an in-depth look at digital identity checking, as well as the work Reed Screening has done in consulting with the Home Office.

During the webinar, we will take you through the changes in legislation, what it means for your business, and changes required to your ID checking processes for onboarding new hires. Keith will also outline how Reed Screening can support you in ensuring you remain compliant and continue to deliver an excellent candidate experience throughout the onboarding process.

Reed Screening has long advised and lobbied on the topic of digital right to work checks through its role on policy committees, advisory boards, delivering questions in parliament, ministerial roundtables, and lobbying for extensions and changes.
