Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 16 days ago.

Obviously we will not know whether somebody has convictions?

Are you employing him?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Can you not see previous convictions?
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Possibly yeah
Expert:  Jo C. replied 16 days ago.

No.

Only the police can do that.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 16 days ago.

We have no access to convictions obviously?

If you are employing him then you could ask for a DBS check but he would have to consent.

Although obviously if he doesn't you just don't employ him.

Can I clarify anything for you?
