Changes to DBS Filtering Rules briefing
13th April 2021
1:15 pm (1:30 pm start) to 3:00 pm
On the 14th September 2020, the House of Commons passed the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2020, which has been described as the most significant change to criminal record disclosure since 1975.
The new rules are extremely complicated; employers have a number of responsibilities including:-
- to inform potential applicants of the new filtering rules
- to ask the correct questions on self-disclosure forms and at suitability interviews
- to provide applicants with the contact details of organisations who can provide impartial advice on what should or should not be included on a self-disclosure
- to destroy any records or notes relating to criminal information at the point that it becomes protected / filtered
- to ensure that recruiters understand what can and cannot be taken into account when making recruitment decisions, including offences that will be filtered even though they are unspent
Carolyn Eyre will be presenting a briefing, via Zoom, which looks at the Supreme Court judgment that led to the new rules and the main changes that member organisations will need to make to current recruitment procedures.
This event is only open to NASS members.
