DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES AS AN EMPLOYER

You must have the legal right to ask someone to undergo a DBS check. The following link gives guidance:

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/dbs-eligibility-guidance


A member of your staff will identify the applicant in accordance with DBS requirements. The following link gives details:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dbs-identity-checking-guidelines/id-checking-guidelines-for-dbs-check-applications-from-3-september-2018


In particular, whoever identifies the applicant must:

Take hold of ORIGINAL documents

Check that they do not appear to have been tampered with

Take photocopies from the originals

Check that photographs match the person

Check that the applicant can emulate any signatures on the documents

You need to be aware of the risk of fraud, which could lead to:

the issue of a ‘clear’ result on someone who actually has convictions or

a breach of Section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 (illegal working).

Please read Checking for Fraud. It should appear on your desktop.

As an employer, for many years you have been obliged to check that employees have the right to work in the UK. The documents provided by the applicant for the DBS check must include evidence of the right to work in the UK.

You send the application to us with the photocopies, a Return Slip and a privacy declaration. N.B the declaration must be sent in paper format. The DBS will not accept an electronic version.
