Hi, thanks for your question.
My name isXXXXX can answer this for you.
There is no obligation to reveal this to your employer unless you were asked this before you were offered the job.
Were you asked this before you got the job?
No, I don't believe anything was mentioned about if I had claimed benefits etc and I was not convicted so I did not reveal it when asked about convictions. I started with my emplyer 11 years ago.
Then I think you should be fine, there was no obligation to disclose it and you can't be criticised for not having disclosed it.
What shall I do about the person who once blackmailed me and stalked me - he has found my home number (not ex directory and haven't moved home) and is sending text messages to my home number saying he will let work know about my "past". he can't believe I am working.
You could report this to the police -that might dissuade him! Blackmail is a criminal offence, as is harassment, and this could be either of those!
Thank you and even if he contacts my employer it should be ok I was not convicted and have had a good work record?
Yes, that's right.
Thanks that has put my mind to rest and I will get in touch with the police. Is the charge £47?
Yes, there is no additional cost.
