The Home Office have announced that from 28 January 2019 employers will be able to rely solely on the online Right to Work Checking Service in specified circumstances to establish if a person has the right to work in the UK, meaning they will no longer have to request paper documents alongside using the service. Changes to illegal working checks have been made under the Immigration (Restrictions on Employment) (Code of Practice and Miscellaneous Amendments) Order 2018, accompanied by a revised Code of practice. The service can be used by non-EEA nationals who hold biometric residence permits or biometric residence cards and EEA nationals who have been granted settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. EEA nationals who do not have settled status under the EEA scheme will still need to demonstrate their right to work through the appropriate documents.
