Right to work checks change to temporary adjustment date to 20 June 2021

14 May 2021

Please note: the information contained in this legal update is correct as of the original date of publication.

Further to our recent post there is a new end date for the temporary adjusted checking processes.

The temporary Covid-19 adjusted right to work checks will now end on 20 June 2021 and not 17 May 2021 as initially planned. This means employers can continue to check scanned documents or photographs and can carry out manual checks via video calls.

The new announcement is aligned with the easing of lockdown restrictions and social distancing measures as set out in the government’s roadmap.

Full details of the current temporary adjustments are available here.
