Any employee that has received a conviction, whether it be a caution, reprimand or warning, will have this information put on their criminal record and held on the Police National Computer. As defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, after a certain length of time, this criminal record will become ‘spent’ and would no longer appear on a Basic disclosure. If you would like to know the exact time frames for these please contact the DBS directly. Pre-May 2013 legislation saw both Enhanced and Standard disclosures showing all previous convictions, however, since 29th May 2013 certain conditions have seen convictions being ‘filtered’ which means that some offences would not appear on the certificate. There is a large list of conviction types and offences that, under the new legislation, can never be filtered from a certificate.
