The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.
You are advised that you are not entitled to withhold information about convictions which are regarded as ‘spent’ under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. This is because the nature of the work involved in this appointment renders the post exempt from section 4(2) of the Act by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975 (as amended). Information that you give will be strictly confidential and will be considered only in relation to this or similar exempted positions in the organisation.
Do you have any convictions or cautions (excluding youth cautions, reprimands or warnings) that are not ‘protected’ as defined by the Ministry of Justice? Guidance can be found at:
