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 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.
