Right to work checks

The main changes to the guide are:

  • The steps that employers should take if, when carrying out a right to work check, they consider a prospective employee presents information indicating that they are a non-EEA national who has been a long-term lawful resident of the UK since before 1988, but does not possess acceptable right to work documentation
  • Clarification on the steps employers should take in relation to existing employees
  • Clarification on the grace period in cases of TUPE transfers
  • Ending restrictions on the employment of Croatian nationals from 1 July
