Employment Law, DBS Checks and The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Due to major statutory changes in 2012 being made to The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the introduction to The Freedom of Information Act 2012 that affects all aspects of the DBS regime it has become essential that business of all sizes need to access Human Resource Support around the issues that the changes bring.
When dealing with an HR issue, failure to comply with Employment Law and HR best practice, even unintentionally, can leave your business vulnerable to costly Employment Tribunal Claims.
Having a DBS Check returned with criminal conviction information is a major issue if you are not sure what relevance the conviction has on a person’s job role.
