Employees from EU member states should check whether they need to apply to the settlement scheme. To do this, they should:
- Check whether they need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme
- Find out what status they have as it may differ depending on their circumstances
- Check what information they’ll need to apply
- Submit an application.
Some EU citizens may be able to stay in the UK without applying – for example, Irish citizens or those with indefinite leave to remain.
The deadline for applying for settled status is 30 June 2021.
It is important that you check that key workers who are EU citizens have the right to remain in the UK post-Brexit to ensure you able to retain their talent for the future.
