Didn't disclose police reprimand from 2007 to uni or workplace Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey all,

    I have posted a similar thread before but have had no responses.

    Basically, I was issued with a police reprimand in 2007 in relation to an offense I committed as a young person. At the time I was immature, wreckless and had no ambitions in life, coupled with low self esteem, death of father and emotional instability.

    I have changed a lot as a person, worked hard in my education to rectify my poor attainment, all the while never mentioned my reprimand since I never thought I'd need too.

    I have been in a part-time job since I was 16 for eight years now, they carry out "enhanced" checks on employees since it is a place where school children are. The problem is, up until recently they never regularly checked employees. I have never been checked in all my eight years nor have I ever felt the inclination to say anything since I thought that legally I wasn't required too (the police told me I wouldn't need to as it would be wiped off). Unfortunately due to changes in reinvention guidelines I was supposed too.

    Will i get fired if they find out through checking?

    Same scenario with university, I never thought I'd need to disclose since I am doing an arts based degree. However, upon reading their policy I need to disclose all convictions, cautions or reprimands. I am soon to be in my third year, I don't want my place to be revoked should I reveal it.
