Recently, employers’ right to work checks has been changed by Home Office guidance. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, performing virtual checks on an individual’s right to work in the UK has been extended to 20th June 2021.
Retrospective checks are not required if you have got a right-to-work check under the temporary arrangements in place between 30 March 2020 and 20 June 2021. Effective from 21 June 2021, virtual checks on individual’s right to work will not be possible, whereas the employers will have to check applicants’ original right-to-work documents.

Sanctions are imposed against illegal working, i.e. sanctions will be imposed when someone is found to be employing a person illegally and the right to work check is not carried out.
