First I have heard of this but this is terrible news indeed

It could be that records take time to get updated I have long suspected some bloke in I.T tapping away with his keyboard simply pressing the delete button on some guys criminal conviction. The issue being is no one knows the exact process and who exactly is doing the updating, I also reckon someone does know this guy and department and has his number but it may be that its just a process of updating each record to comply with law etc

Perhaps unlock can advise here on any way to get this updated quicker?

That complaints email you said is invalid so one has to dig further I would also suggest writing a complaint headed letter (recorded delivery) to scotland disclosure since they hold information regarding you which is incorrect and illegal by law and demand the information be updated or altered to comply with law. Someone has to do something at that point as in someone who knows something.

Remember you may be an ex-offender but everyone is a criminal in this world and just like yourself you can use the law against them.

Regardless as nicely put by nice try, the ROA and spent and not and cautions etc it really means nothing if employers and other companies such as dbs ( UK government) are counter working against the ROA Law by allowing illegal (criminal) checks to take place on a daily basis.

Still it does not surprise me considering Metropolitan police officers leak Criminal records to everyone as shown here:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2621016/Met-shame-officers-leak-data-force-computer-criminals-300-uniform-civilian-staff-caught-abusing-system.html

And then the officers were simply sacked or resigned before being prosecuted.... or worse rehired later on

It does sound like its going off the old system, was not even aware basic disclosures were mentioning that much detail all that for a basic job stacking baked beans or working in a shop or office, complete madness that is uk.

Hi, this thread has spooked me! You see I have been offered a great new job and the employer is carrying out a basic disclosure check via Disclosure Scotland. I have one conviction with a community service order which is now spent under recent changes to ROA. The thing is, I can't remember if I was handed a compensation order!... I remember paying some money to the court on the day of sentencing, which I think was a fine and probably costs.

I requested a basic disclosure myself (just to check the changes) and this was issued on 22/04/2014. It just said 'the applicant has no convictions for disclosure - End of disclosure'.

Is this compensation order thing a new rule change? Will it affect future disclosures? If I did have a compensation order would it have shown up on the April check?

Really worried - I've already quit my old job thinking basic disclosure would be fine.


Got no choice but just to crack on with things and not worry, if the current basic check says nothing then it should in theory stay that way unless you re-offended or lived as I put it Smile

I would not do anything in haste but if it comes it comes then deal with it.
