And does your employer have a policy on such convictions etc?
Expert:  joannem1965 replied 5 years ago.

Hi there just because you've got cautions and your employer's asking you to do a CRB check doesn't mean you'll be dismissed so I'd suggest you hold off any resignation. There are some factors that'll be taken into account when deciding if a dismissal will be fair. For example, do the cautions affect your ability to do your job, were you supposed to disclose these when you started work or during your time there but didn't, and so on. These are cautions you have - they're spent immediately once issued, they're not formal convictions. Also they aren't for child or sexual offences so they shouldn't affect you working in schools. I wouldn't say this will end up in you getting the sack so you shouldn't be resigning either. Good luck
