Some people with a criminal record may have committed minor offences but moved on from past mistakes and offer a wide range of skills and abilities. Employers may inadvertently have recruitment policies or practices in place that exclude people with convictions creating a barrier to fair and inclusive recruitment.
In this series of masterclasses, safe and fair employment expert Dominic Headley covers recent changes to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act to help you make informed, safe, and confident decisions regarding employment of those with previous offences.
Primarily created to accompany the one-day Safe and Fair recruitment – gathering information workshop, these masterclasses can be helpful to all organisations that carry out criminal record checks.
For confidential advice, guidance and support, employers can signpost applicants to Nacro’s Criminal Record Support Service prior to answering any questions about their criminal record.
