Temporary changes to Right to Work processes ends on 5 April 2022
The Home Office have announced that the temporary adjustments to right to work (RTW) checks due to COVID-19, which allow a check to be undertaken remotely, are ending. In response to feedback across many different sectors, the end date for 'adjusted' checks was delayed from 16 May 2021 to 20 June 2021, then to 31 August 2021 and now until 5 April 2022. The delay to the return 'face to face' or online right to work checks only is welcome, as is the fact that they have removed the requirement for retrospective RTW checks to be done on adjusted checks undertaken between 30 March 2020 and 5 April 2022 (inclusive).
