Employers Now Required to Check for EU Nationals’ Right to Work


An EU national is a person who can automatically obtain the right to reside in another country in Europe, as long as they’ve lived there legally for at least 5 years. Fulfilling this requirement will allow them to live there even if you left that country for more than 10 years.

It can be useful when it comes to dealing with administrators and authorities that may complicate things for them.

This will help residents because they won’t be required to prove that they have a job anymore, or any information such as health insurance, and more.However, that’s about to change.

The immigration minister, Caroline Nokes, had just announced that employers are now expected to check whether these EU nationals have the right to work in the United Kingdom.

This is their way of addressing the current issues with European employment that remain unknown.

For employers, it may mean that they will be required to conduct such tiresome checks to figure out if an EU national has the right for a job.

While it may cause serious concerns to European employer groups, it’s not impossible to get used to it. Not only will it secure higher-quality European employment, but it’ll also help the United Kingdom.

Particularly, EU citizens are required to have “settled status” so they may stay in the United Kingdom.This will be tiring in the employer’s side, but soon it will surely bring benefits to the business industry.

Looking at the advanced technology, many Europeans are thinking that it won’t be long before background checks have their own tools so it may be conducted easier. This, of course, is the result of this movement from the immigration minister.
