As a general rule, no-one need answer questions about spent convictions. However this general rule does not apply to specified professions, employments and occupations. By virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) (Amendment) Orders, the exemption rule does not apply to:
One or both of the above apply to work at the Home, and covers all occupations.
You are therefore requested to provide details of all convictions, including those which would otherwise be considered as “spent”. All employment applications will be considered carefully, and the disclosure of a conviction does not imply that this employment application will be rejected.
Records will be checked via the Criminal Records Bureau procedures.
The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) have issued a Code of Practice regarding Disclosure Information, a copy of which is available upon request. A Disclosure Certificate (standard or enhanced) will be requested from the CRB which will detail all convictions, including those which would otherwise be “spent”, as well as details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings. You will be advised of the type of certificate being requested, and asked to give your approval to this application. The Disclosure Certificate will only be requested in the event that you are successful in your application for employment.
Under Section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 it is a criminal offence to employ a person aged 16 or over who issubject to immigration control unless:
Any employment offered will be subject to the successful applicant producing appropriate evidence that the Asylum and Immigration Act is not being contravened.
