This is why they are all crying over the new ROA periods.

They like being nosy and now they can't. They are being forced to treat everybody equally

and they do not like it!

Hi Mirrorman - so you're unable to name a company that offered you a job and retracted the offer after you disclosed?

I never disclose, ever. It's idiotic to do so.

In my eyes asking for a CBR will result in no job offer so any job who asks for one are discriminating from the start.

I don't get the point of this?

Basically EVERY company will discriminate. Every single one of them.

Better to have a list of those who won't.

Well obviously they are going to discriminate against you if your conviction isn't spent. I don't get it.

I think you have the right idea very few employers especially those with dedicated HR teams care about your past your a crim in their eyes and there are 30 people waiting in line for the same job you applied for so no loss to them
if they require a dbs i may risk telling them or just turn down the job and leave there are no incentives for telling the truth yes the the system as it is now encourages you be dishonest which doesnt help our image as a whole.
