New right to work checks: what changes for employers?

14 July 2021

In June, the Home Office published new guidance on right to work checks for EU citizens, which came into force on 1 July 2021. Employers are required to carry out checks to make sure that the people they employ have the right to work in the UK.

This applies to all right to work checks carried out from 1 July, and failure to comply carries criminal and civil penalties ‚Äď from unlimited fines to a potential jail sentence. Are you confident you know what your responsibilities are and how to carry out the correct right to work checks?
