Temporary adjusted right to work checks extended until 30 September 2022

23 February 2022

Following positive feedback, the adjusted right to work check end date has been postponed until 30 September 2022. 

Previously due to end on 6 April 2022, the extension will allow the current process to run alongside the Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) employers can use in the new tax year. This will allow employers time to engage with IDVT suppliers and build working relationships before implementing new processes. 

A reminder of what adjusted right to work checks allow you to do:

•    checks can 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
•    use the Home Office Employer Checking Service if a prospective or existing employee cannot provide any of the accepted documents
