What legal requirements are foreign workers obliged to fulfil?
Nationals from any of the other 24 EU countries are allowed to enter the United Kingdom freely and may take up employment without a work permit. The only requirement is that once a person begins work for an employer they must complete a form under the Workers Registration Scheme requirements and send it to the Home Office. There is a one-time fee of £50 payable by the applicant for registration. An employer is not obliged to pay this fee. They can do this by visiting: www.workingintheuk.gov.uk/working_in_the_uk/en/documents/all_forms.html and downloading the form, or by simply ringing: 0870 5210224.
