There are now less than 20 days until the deadline on 30 June 2021 for applying to the EU Settlement Scheme. By starting the application process now, you will have as much time as possible to gather any evidence you need to complete your application.

Citizens and their family members from the EU, EEA and Switzerland who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 should apply without delay to be eligible to continue working, studying, and accessing free healthcare and benefits after 30 June.

As an employer with EU, EEA and Swiss citizens living in the UK since 31 December 2020, you can play a role by reminding your employees of the nearing deadline. The UK government has provided an employer toolkit with all the information needed to support EU citizens to apply. As of 1 July 2021, new EU, EEA and Swiss employees that you hire 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.

If you have any questions about the EU Settlement Scheme, please get in touch with our HR Manager at jacqui.brown@goodwille.com.
