Changes - work (general N-Z): Place of work history - entering (Info)

If the customer and/or their partner reports that they have started working and

  • these are the first work details entered on the computer

or

  • where an existing employment exists but no place of work history details have been entered

you must enter the place of work history details.

If the customer and/or their partner have work details entered on the computer but there are no place of work history details recorded for that person, then this will cause a verification failure.

Firstly, you must follow the appropriate guidance in TCM0048000 and TCM0050000 and then you must update the place of work history.

When entering dates in the Start Date and Include From fields, you can enter the same dates that are already entered in the Work Start and Include From fields, because restrictions will have already been considered.

If the customer or their partner reports that they have ended their job, then there is no requirement to end their place of work history provided that the customer or their partner aren’t starting a new job outside the UK.

If the customer or their partner has ended their work in the UK and they report that they are going to start work outside the United Kingdom (UK) or they have changed their employment outside the UK to another job outside the UK, then follow the guidance in TCM0050080.

There is an Action Guide for this subject, select TCM0050120 to access it.
