Right To Work Checks

people signing documents

14th May, 2021

In March 2020, the Government announced that right to work checks would temporarily be amended during the COVID-19 pandemic so that they could be carried out over video calls, as opposed to in person, and scanned documents as opposed to originals would be acceptable for job applicants. This was due to end on 16 May 2021.

The Government has now confirmed that this temporary amendment has been extended to 20 June 2021 given the ongoing restrictions and normal checks will resume in line with the step four of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

The full guidance document, available here, also states that retrospective checks will not be required to be carried out for all adjusted right to work checks conducted during this period, in order to support businesses at a difficult time and moving forward.
