Right to work checks - Government extends deadline for physical checks 

The government’s pushed back its deadline to reintroduce physical right to work checks from Monday 17 May to Monday 21 June. 

From that date, you must either check the applicant’s original documents or check the applicant’s right to work via the online service. The online service is only available to those people who hold a biometric residence permit or a residence card, or have been granted UK immigration status under the EU settlement scheme or points-based immigration system.
