Vetting Check

Post by Lee_Wo » Sat Jul 11, 2009 12:26 am

Hi there was wondering if you would be able to clear something up for me please. I have passed all my tests for the prison service and am just waiting for all my vetting checks to clear. However in the time between this I have managed to pkick up a erbal warning at work, through a silly error and trusting someone else when I should have checked itmyself. Would this be disclosed to the prison service on the reference check? Also if it would, would this automatically rule me out of the selection process? Up until now my work record has been compltey clean. I am thinking about appealing the decision to gt it off my record. Was just hoping someone would be able to confirm if you can still pass the vetting checks please?

hi Lee_Wo

Welcome to the the site :slbg:

I would say there is nothing to worry about as it was dealt with in house with a verbal warning and will not be mention on your reference check.

Had it resulted in you been dismissed it would be a different kettle of fish and that would have to be disclosed.

Is your current employer aware that you have applied to the Prison Service?

Thanks fr your reply. No my current employer is not aware of me applying for the prison service.

Do you not what sort of questions are asked on the reference form?

Thanks for that, but doesn't really mention about having a verbal warning on there...I take it that means that it would not get mentioned as there wouldn't be a question on the reference form referring to this?
