EU Settlement Scheme

The EU Settlement Scheme deadline is just around the corner - Have all your staff applied?

Most EU citizens living in the UK (as well as those from the EEA and Switzerland) need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to gain Settled Status so they can continue to live and work in the UK after 30 June 2021. The pandemic is having an impact on application times to the EU Settlement Scheme, so it’s vital that people apply as soon as possible. In some cases applications take months to decide.

You need to consider the impact on your organisation if staff do not have Settled Status, as they will not be able to work.

It is important that European citizens and their non-EU family members apply for pre-Settled Status or Settled Status before 30 June 2021 to avoid any interruption of rights and entitlements after that date, for example they will not be able to:

  • Work
  • Study
  • Rent a home
  • Apply for a mortgage or driving licence
  • Sign mobile telephone, utility or broadband agreements
  • Have Access to NHS healthcare

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
