IMPACT – HIGH
The Home Office has extended the temporary right to work check measures until April. 5, 2022.
Additional Information: If the job applicant or existing worker cannot show their documents, employers must contact the Home Office Employer Checking Service. If the individual has a right to work, a “Positive Verification Notice” will be sent which provides a statutory excuse for six months from the date of the notice.
The Home Office has indicated it is developing a post-pandemic solution such that all employees will be able to demonstrate a right to work online. This would mean, for example, that British and Irish citizens would not need to provide their original documents and may mean the end of all physical document checks.
BAL Analysis: The extension of the temporary measures will benefit those who have been conducting modified right to work checks since March of 2020. However, employers are reminded to take note of the April 5, 2022, date for when temporary measures are set to end. BAL will continue to monitor right to work check measures and will provide more information as it becomes available.
