Covid 19 Image

Right to work checks have been temporarily adjusted due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is to make it easier for employers to carry them out.

As of 30 March 2020 the following temporary changes have been made:

  • checks can now be carried out over video calls

  • job applicants and existing workers can send scanned documents or a photo of documents for checks using email or a mobile app, rather than sending originals

  • employers should use the Employer Checking Service if a prospective or existing employee cannot provide any of the accepted documents
