More and more employers consider using criminal record checks as part of their recruitment process. Whether this is to meet regulatory requirements or to mitigate risks in the workplace, employers need to make sure that they handle criminal record data correctly.

Bird & Bird HR Data Essentials is proud to be joined by speakers from the Disclosure & Barring Service and the Information Commissioner’s Office to discuss the following programme:

  • What data protection and employment law issues does an employer need to consider when handling criminal record data?
  • How does the criminal disclosure system work in England and Wales?
  • What does the recent ICO Guidance on criminal offence data mean for employers running criminal record checks?
  • Tips for reviewing your existing recruitment process – from application to offer – to make sure employers comply with their legal obligations.
Details of the agenda will follow but please RSVP now to avoid disappointment.
