Toolkit for employers on the EU citizens’ settlement scheme

A collection of ‘toolkit’ documents issued by the Home Office and UK Visas and Immigration contains leaflets, posters and a briefing pack to help employers support EU citizens to apply for settled status or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. It also contains recommendations on how the employer toolkit materials can be used.
The toolkit sets out that, under the EU Settlement Scheme, employers:• have a duty not to discriminate against EU citizens• are not expected to pay/support the cost of the scheme application for their EU citizen employees, but are welcome to do so at their own discretion

• have no legal obligation to communicate the scheme, but may wish to signpost the information

• do not have to interpret government information and must not provide immigration advice

Current ‘right to work’ checks (eg EU passport and/or national ID card) apply until the end of 2020. There will be no change to the rights and status of EU citizens living in the UK until 2021.
