Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Is this the only thing on your record?

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

yes

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

assault for beating (section 39)

Ben Jones :

yes all cautions would usually get removed from your criminal check after 6 years as long as they are not on the list of exempt offences, but this offence is not on there so it should be removed after 6 years. I cannot say if it will be a standard or basic check - they can choose which one

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

on a basic will it show

Ben Jones :

No

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

if a bank does a standard will they ask me about it

Ben Jones :

yes they need your consent

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

they just did a criminal record check what is this type

Ben Jones :

well it could be either basic or standard, it could even be enhanced I don't know - all they need is your consent to conduct a criminal check

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

but working in a bank surely an enhanced is not required

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

I thought you could only do certain types for the roles you were going for

Ben Jones :

actually enhanced checks can be carried out in financial roles and also those that work with children and vulnerable adults

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

I work as an IT person so would this count

Ben Jones :

for that probably not

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

Would this appear on a Standard CRB and would it be removed after 6 years

Ben Jones :

cautions will appear on it but will be removed after 6 years

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

So all cautions are removed on standard an enhanced after 6 years

Ben Jones :

not all, there are exceptions, there is a long list of offences that are not removed but your particular offence is not on there

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

Will this caution be removed from standard and enahnced list

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

okay so this will definitely be removed

Ben Jones :

from a standard check yes - it may still appear on an enhanced check because that has additional sections that can include additional information from your police record, even after 6 years have elapsed, but you should not be subjected to one in this job

Ben Jones :

Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks

JACUSTOMER-nlnh86h4- :

I have a police caution do I need to disclose if the employee handbook says "conviction of a criminal offence or behaviour (e.g theft) which makes the individual unsuitable for his/her job or unaccpetable to other employees

Ben Jones :

no you do not, a caution is not a criminal offence

Ben Jones :

has this clarified your position?
