This Brexit Letter to EEA Citizens about EU Settlement Scheme is to be used
by employers to remind employees who are European Economic Area (EEA)
citizens of the importance of applying for settled status under the EU
Settlement Scheme so that they can remain in the UK.
The deadline for submitting applications under the EU Settlement Scheme is
30 June 2021. In the event of a no deal exit from the EU, the deadline for
submitting applications will be 31 December 2020. It is advisable for EEA
citizens to submit applications as soon as possible in case there are
problems with the application.
The letter explains:
· What the EU Settlement Scheme is
· Why EEA citizens have to apply
· Who should apply
· Settled and pre-settled status
· How to apply
· How long the application will take
· Applications deadlines
It is up to individual employees as to when they submit an application for
settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, but it is good practice for
employers to remind their employees of the importance of applying.
