Criminal record checks are mandatory checks for hiring because no employer wants to hire someone unsuitable for particular work roles. However, in industries where employees are working with children, the elderly or other vulnerable communities, police checks are vital for an organization to rule out employing people who are past offenders. In these cases, where an employer believes that a criminal record is relevant to a specific job, they are required to state this clearly in the job ad, in information sent out to applicants and in recruitment briefs to agencies. Organizations conduct criminal background checks to reduce legal liability for negligent hiring and to ensure a safe work environment for employees.
