Right to Work Check Changes from 1st July 2021

From 1 July 2021, new rules for right to work checks will apply. EU, EEA, or Swiss citizens will need to provide evidence of lawful immigration status in the UK.

Below are links to the forthcoming changes for RTW checks, that have been published on Gov.UK. Whilst these set out the key changes for employers more specifically, we are advised by the Home Office Asylum,Protection and Enforcement Directorate that there is a similarity to the impacts for LAs.
