Changes to Right to Work Checks from July 2021

Posted: August 13, 2021
Posted: 13 August 2021

The process has changed for completing right to work checks on EU, EEA and Swiss citizens.

Employers may have staff who they checked for right to work based on EU passports or ID cards. Since the deadline for applications to the EU settlement scheme on the 30 June 2021 this is no longer relevant and employers should check their status online to prove their right to work. If they do not have the right because they have not applied for settled status, they may be able to submit a late application.

You do not need to retrospectively check the status of any EU, EEA or Swiss citizens employed before 1 July 2021.
