Hi' I,v been with my company for three yrs, been a good employee and work hard however they have now asked for an enhanced DBS which will show 3 convictions which I got 12 yrs a go. I have been told that my position should only be a basic check and not to declare these however when I started with the company I declared these in writing but still got the job! But I think they lost my letter and never noticed my convictions as on my first day they performed a check via logging in to the computer, as I already declared my confictions I did do the check but I did not advise of the conviction again. I am now unsure whether to declare these again or not too, when I started the job they did do a check but unsure if it was basic or enhanced. What are my rights if I declare and they sake me or if I don't declare can I fight this advising that I have already declared these. Can I ask for my information they have for me from HR too find out if my letter is in my file.
My job is in an office answering incoming calls on a Careline which involve helping the elderly with either maintenance problems or health problems, no contact is made with the clients.
Really need advice.
