Employers are obliged to make candidates aware as soon as possible that a criminal record check is a requirement for the job, complying with the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.  Staffvetting can assist your HR team to design a recruitment process which complies with the Act.


The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 defines a conviction is deemed spent when a defined period of time (or rehabilitation period) has passed after the individual has been sentenced. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act sets out rehabilitation periods for each type of crime. Once a conviction is spent, it will no longer appear on a basic disclosure certificate. Spent convictions should not negatively count against a candidate.
