The guidance, ‘An employer’s guide to right to work checks: 16 August 2017’ has been updated to include the changes set out on page 4 which include: (i) advice in respect of those who claim to have a right to work as a non-European Economic Area (EEA) family member of an EEA national; (ii) illegal working measures introduced by the Immigration Act 2016, including closure notices and compliance orders; and (iii) the employment of international students.
