UK Boarder Agency to improve employer checking service for migrant workers

ECS is a developing service run by the UKBA. ECS will assist employers in checking the validity of application registration cards and certificates of UK migrant worker\’s application. The service requires immigrant workers to submit required evidence to provide their legal working status in the UK. Employers must check these documents before the UK immigrants start their jobs. In addition, the employers must keep a copy of the checked documents, which will provide them with a statutory excuse if they are found to be employing an illegal worker.

The service will be made available for use by other government departments and agencies. According to the UKBA, they will anticipate a \”period of technological and service development\” before service is offered to the public.

The period of technological and service development will require optional, future services enabling remote checks, which may include biometric chip-reading technology for downloading and biometric chip reading hardware. The web-based high availability interface should include data gathering, data staging, and the secure transfer of data to and from the authority in near real time. It should also comprise the display of return data, check history management, and maintain data in flight and in storage in a secure fashion.
