Failed vetting appeal

Post by J4k300 » Mon Sep 30, 2019 7:31 pm

My vetting failed just short of 2 months ago for an OSG role due to a past employer not returning a reference! After chasing this they returned this reference and sscl confirmed that they had received this and it had been passed onto the appeals panel to make a decision on. I’ve still not heard anything and sscl now can’t give me an update on where I stand as they say it is out of their hands, does anyone have any idea on when I am likely to hear something, or have an alternate contact number that will be able to give me an update on my appeal?

Did you hear anything/how did you get on?
Currently going through the appeal myself and it’s driving me crazy! 😊

I thought SSCL could check your work history by checking HMRC records? Therefore a reference wouldn’t necessarily be needed..

They only check references if the dates you give don’t match up to the ones hmrc have for you working there 😊
