Home Office guidance – right to work checks

right to work

The Home Office has published an updated version of An Employer’s Guide to Right to Work Checks, available here. The main changes to the guide concern:

  • what to do in relation to a non-EEA national who has been a long-term lawful resident of the UK since before 1988, and does not possess acceptable right to work documentation;
  • further clarification on appropriate steps for employers in relation to existing employees;
  • clarification of the grace period in cases of TUPE transfers; and
  • ending restrictions on the employment of Croatian nationals with effect from 1 July 2018.
