Criminal record checking is now a commonplace aspect of the employment process and affects a significant proportion of the population. Routine use of criminal record checks risks inhibiting rehabilitation of ex-offenders. At the same time there is very little understanding of either the drivers for criminal records checking or how criminal records data is treated by employers when it is provided to them by the police. The project shed light on employer practices, critically analysed the practices, and found that the complex legal frameworks drive the practices, and proposes way forward.
