Right to work checks: What has changed?

Authors: Victoria Welsh and Kinka Tonchev, Fragomen

The Home Office has published updated Guidance on right to work checks for employers. The new guidance contains significant changes to the UK's right to work check system following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020 and the subsequent grace period for checking the right to work of EEA and Swiss nationals (collectively referred to as "EEA nationals" in the rest of this document) on 30 June 2021. Below, Fragomen reviews the changes to the guidance and interprets what this means for HR teams.
