Checking an EU citizen job applicant's right to work

Employers will need to check a job applicant's right to work in the same way as now until 30 June 2021.

Until this date job applicants can prove their right to work in the following ways:

  • EU, EEA or Swiss citizens can use their passport or national identity card
  • non-EU, EEA or Swiss citizen family members can use an immigration status document listed in the right to work checks employer guide
  • EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members can use the online right to work checking service

Employee's online self-service checking system.

If an applicant uses the online checking service this will generate a share code. Employers must then use the employers' online service to check their right to work using this share code.
