The United Kingdom has implemented a new process for employers completing right-to-work checks on EU, EEA, and Swiss nationals.
Background: U.K. employers are required to conduct a right-to-work for all new employees.
Generally, an online check is required for applicants who have digital proof of their immigration status, including most EU/EEA/Swiss nationals. Manual checks of passports or other valid documents can be completed for U.K. and Irish nationals. Manual checks are also required for foreign nationals who cannot prove their immigration status online, including most non-EU/EEA/Swiss visa holders.
Temporary COVID-19 measures in place until Aug. 31 allow employers to conduct right-to-work checks over video calls with scanned or photographed documents sent via email or mobile app. Additional information on the temporary measures is available here.
BAL Analysis: Employers are encouraged to review their internal right-to-work check procedures to ensure they are in compliance with the new rules for EU/EEA/Swiss nationals. Employers are also reminded that temporary COVID-19 measures on right-to-work checks are set to expire after Aug. 31. BAL is able to assist employers in ensuring they remain in compliance with current procedures.
