This Recruitment Policy reflects the end of free movement between the UK and the European Economic Area. Employers should be aware that it is obligatory for employers to ensure that all employees, and not just those from outside the UK, can prove their entitlement to work in the UK.
Covid Right to Work Note
During the coronavirus pandemic, employers have been able to carry out virtual checks on an individual’s right to work in the UK, but this will not be possible after 20 June 2021. With effect from 21 June 2021, employers will have to check applicants’ original right-to-work documents where possible:
There is no need for employers to carry out retrospective checks on anyone who had a right-to-work check under the temporary arrangements in place between 30 March 2020 and 20 June 2021.
