Settled Status means that the individual has the right to live, work, and remain indefinitely, free of immigration control. It also means that the holder can access public funds and after 12 months, apply for British citizenship.
EEA citizens and their family members can no longer rely on their EEA passport or national identity card to prove their right to work in the UK. Instead they must prove their immigration status in the same way as all other foreign nationals. As an employer, you will need your EEA workers (hired after 1 July 2021), granted a status under EUSS, to provide a share code, so you can carry out a Right to Work check.
