Why use our services?
The law makes it a criminal offence for some people who fail to notify their employers they are guilty of certain criminal offences before taking a job or performing a service. This duty to notify your employer relates primarily to sex offenders guilty of offences committed in Ireland and abroad.
Section 26 of the Sex Offenders Act 2001 creates a specific offence for failing to disclose to an employer or contractor that you are a sex offender. When a person is vetted by the Gardaí the details of all convictions and prosecutions are disclosed to the liaison person in the registered organisation. The details will include all completed prosecutions whether or not they were successful and will also include any pending prosecutions.
Since 31 March 2014 an administrative filter (pdf link) has been applied to all Garda vetting applications. This allows certain minor convictions over 7 years old to be removed from disclosures. When the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 comes into effect, it will become mandatory for persons working with children or vulnerable adults to be vetted by the Gardaí. The Act also provides for the use of "soft" information in regard to vetting. This is information, apart from criminal convictions, which may lead to a bona-fide belief that a person poses a threat to children or vulnerable persons.
