EU Settlement Scheme – less than 50 days left to apply

Individuals who have not yet applied for residency in the UK under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) but intend to do so are reminded that the deadline of 30th June 2021 for applications to be received is fast approaching. In order to maintain their right to work, study, and access to free healthcare and benefits in the UK after this date, all EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and family members who were resident in the UK by 31st December 2020 should apply without delay.

Although it is not an employers responsibility to ensure that EU workers have applied, with less than 50 days remaining before the deadline arrives, it is recommended that businesses remind such workers of the deadline and pass on information provided in the employer toolkit available here where necessary.

Employers will not need to carry out retrospective right to work checks on existing employees after the 30th June deadline, however from 1st July, new EU, EEA and Swiss employees that are hired will need to demonstrate their right to work either with the pre-settled or settled status, or with a visa under the points-based immigration system.
