Updated Right to Work check standard

Lady on computer

We have updated our Right to Work check standard to make clearer the functionalities of the Home Office's online portal for right to work checks.

Available since January 2019, the Home Office's "View a job applicant's right to work details" portal allows employers to view the detail the details of an applicant's right to work online, in real time. Once an applicant has proved their right to work with the Home Office, they will be provided with a unique share code which they can pass on to employers.

The system also allows employers to check if an EU national has been granted settled status under the EU settlement scheme, by the same share code process.

Visit our web page to learn more.

For more information, please refer to our standard, or Home Office guidance.
