Right-to-work checks for EU citizens will remain unchanged until 30 June 2021. Until this date, applicants can prove their right to work using an EU Passport or national ID card for EU, EEA or Swiss citizens. EU, EEA or Swiss citizens and their family members may also choose to use the online right to work checking service.
Employers will not be required to differentiate between those who were resident before the UK left the EU and those who came to the UK after the UK left the EU.
Employers will not be required to check that their employees have obtained Settled Status, or pre-Settled Status. For EU citizens to get Settled/pre-Settled Status they must have been in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020.
New employees may choose to demonstrate their right to work by demonstrating their Settled Status or pre-Settled Status but employers cannot require them to do so until after 30 June 2021 and must not discriminate against EU nationals.
