I am looking for some advice please, I left my previous employer in August 2016. Whilst employed there I received a conditional discharge (6 months) in April 2016 which is now spent. This was linked to a domestic situation and damage caused to a vehicle.
I have applied for a job and been offered it subject to references which they have now received but the previous employer has stated 'has a criminal conviction for damage to property' on my reference, the job I've applied for is as a sales/Lettings agent in which I have not been asked to disclose any convictions.
I have explained the conviction to my new employer etc and they are okay with it but I've read that it's illegal for any 3rd party to disclose my conviction.
What should I do?
