This helpful and practical guide is for employers and recruiters in the construction sector. It will help them understand their rights and responsibilities, and achieve best practice when implementing fair and safe procedures for employing a person with a criminal record.

It provides support to those with criminal records, so that they can play a full and economically active role in society. It will also help to boost employment in the construction industry, reduce skills gaps and hopefully reduce reoffending.
