Right to work checks should still be carried out before employment begins and can be done either online or in person using hard copy documents.
The documentation that can be accepted from an EU/EEA national or their family member will depend on whether they have registered under the EU Settlement Scheme.
Individuals who have registered under the Scheme do not receive a formal document showing that they have settled or pre-settled status but instead their status is shown on their online immigration account.
From this account they can generate a code which they provide to their employer. This allows the employer to log on, view their status and download or print this as evidence of their right to work.
The right to work check guidance has been updated soon before the end of the grace period on 30 June 2021 and in August 2021 (see above).
