Should criminal records be sealed from employers?
Last month, David Lammy MP published a review recommending that, in certain cases, criminal records could be sealed from employers. Reforms such as this could have positive consequences for businesses and workers alike. Catherine Hawkes in our Employment & HR team examines the issue in her recent article for Personnel Today.
The article looks into recruitment of ex-offenders and possible benefits to businesses that employing ex-offenders could bring, and questions whether the time has come for employers to rethink their attitudes.
