Leave Pre-employment Screening to the Experts

You want to check out applicants before you employ them, but it can be a minefield if you go it alone.

Trust our experts at RIDING. to carry out all legitimate pre-employment checks.

We Can Steer You Clear of Pitfalls Like:

  • Businesses can incur a fine of up to £10,000 if they have not collated evidence showing an employee's right to work in the UK?
  • Employers are obliged to carry out a criminal record check for jobs which involve working with children or vulnerable adults, or in healthcare. This must be compliant with the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service)
  • Unless the job is categorized as above, as an employer it is an offence to refuse someone a job on the basis of spent convictions
  • Employers can face prosecution if they refuse a job to someone on the basis of their disability, unless this disability would stop them from being able to carry out the job

At RIDING, all of our experts have experience guiding our clients through the pre-employment screening process. We make sure we do not infringe UK employment law, giving you peace of mind about your potential employee.
