  A Basic Disclosure checks an individuals unspent convictions more commonly known as a CRB check.   A Basic online disclosure checks an individuals’ criminal record and results in a certificate providing details of an applicant’s unspent convictions. Under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 as outlined by the government this level of criminal record check is available to any individual or employers. This is the most commonly required level of criminal record check and should be the level you are requesting if the Standard and Enhanced requirements do not apply to you.

Standard DBS checks show details of both a candidate’s unspent and spent convictions as well as any cautions received.  As the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974  protects applicants from having to disclose details of spent cautions and convictions unless they are applying for a position that is exempt from the act, we recommend that anyone wishing to obtain a Standard DBS ensures that the position applied for allows for a Standard DBS – such positions include those involved in the legal system, licencing, health services, police, prisons or positions with financial control.

Enhanced DBS checks are essential for applicants who will be working with children or vulnerable adults as depending on an individual’s criminal record history they may be unsuitable for such positions. An Enhanced DBS check covers both spent and unspent convictions, a Barred List check (which checks if an individual is on a list of people barred from working with children or vulnerable adults), as well as any other information that the police hold on the individual that they feel it is relevant to disclose.

Terms and Conditions


Pre Employment Screening

pre employment screening


It is always important for employers to know that the information applicants have provided on their CVs is correct, as employers are often using this information to make a decision on whether or not to hire that particular applicant.

UK Employee Checks provides an employee vetting service whereby all information presented on a CV can be checked and verified. This can cover elements of or all of the following; employment reference checks (generally for 5 years of employment history but this can be adapted to suit your needs), educational history, professional qualifications and professional  memberships.

It is worth noting that these background checks and the employee vetting process in general should not be considered solely for potential employees. Vetting current employees can also help to ensure that individuals do not have anything that would count against them in terms of the positions they currently hold.

Employee checks such as bankruptcy, CCJ searches, Bank of England Sanction searches, media searches and other background checks (see our full list of services) can highlight any negative listings of information that may affect an individual’s suitability for certain positions. Criminal record checks (previously known as CRB checks) in particular have come to be seen as an essential part of all background vetting over the last few years, so our staff at UK Employee Checks have considerable experience in carrying out these background checks and we are able to provide Basic Disclosures as well as Standard DBS Checks and Enhanced DBS checks.

If you require a quote on our employee screening prices please visit our contact page. We have a full list of the various background checks which can be carried out and using our online form you can select  the checks that are applicable for your company and a member of our team will respond to you accordingly.
