Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
How long have you worked for this employer and what is the nature of the work you will be doing in the new role?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. Whether you tell the employer will very much depend on the internal policies or any conditions under the SC which require you to declare that.
First of all, you need to check these to see if there is a specific requirement for you to report anything like that, even if it is just an investigation.
If there s nothing that specific mentioned, then you need to consider what the original application would have considered and if you would have had to declare any such details to them if you were applying for the SC from scratch. If so, then that would be something they should know about now as it would be a change to your circumstances, when compared to the position you were in when the original SC was granted and that would have been a relevant factor taken into account at the time.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Hi sorry I have only just seen this, it may have been a technical issue that hid it from my list.
To answer your queries:
Failing to update them will not be a criminal matter but the SC can be withdrawn and you could be barred from obtaining future SCs, either for a period of time or indefinitely. That could also lead to dismissal for dishonesty and/or failure to hold the SC needed for the job
There is no right or wrong answer to that as it depends on the employer and also your personal feelings over that matter
That would be the best outcome as even though you may have to mention it, the positive outcome should mean you are not presumed guilty of anything and it should not affect your SC
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
