Glad I found this forum and had a good read hope I'm posting at the right place.
I got caught at a supermarket for not paying an item worth £35. (feel deeply ashamed and want to punish myself more than anyone else, I don't why I did it had some alcohol before that happened and curious about things, I would never do that again, so no lecture pls)
The security took me to a back room and checked the price of item and called duty manager,
and they said you are lucky as usually the would call police straight away
and then gave me a piece of paper (NOTICE OD INTENDED CIVIL RECOVERY) RLP.
They said you need to make the payment with certain days and they are not calling police this time.
And I'm banned from the supermarket lifetime (from duty manager) and banned from the mall for six months (from mall security).
I explained to them I have been out of job for a while and apparently had a job offer and now under screening checks.
They asked me do I use other facilities in the mall I said I will need to enter the work place in the estate
and the gym in the mall as well.
And supermarket security asked the mall security are you sure you want to go ahead.
However he said keep this paper (mall ban 6 months) and come back to me with your proof of work offer, but don't lose this paper.
Not sure what he meant by that (I was panicking so just wanted to leave that place so didnt ask many Qs).
My quesions -
On the notice of intended civil recovery
- on the bottom NB it said data protection act 1998 does not prevent use of data for civil recovery and employment screening purposes...
. You are notified that personal info held about you may be passed to police for criminal proceedings....
Your personal data maybe stored and used by prospective employers working client companies to make employment decision.
They all sound quite scary to me, the work I'm applying is with a major bank.
Would this be somehow disclosed to checking party on behalf of the bank?
It mentioned they can pass my detail to police.
They didn't do so at the incident.
If they pass onto police
Would I have a criminal record or any negative record on file that would be represented in CRB cheek?
It all happened yestersay and I am going back to the mall to let the security person know I have an offer with the bank as he suggested.
Do you think he would be planning to lift my ban to the mall?
Otherwise why did he ask me to do so?
He sounded quite nice and ensured me don't worrry about the credit checking etc
this is civil matter won't affect my history.
Is this their general style when things happen or what he actually meant it? S
Sorry for all this and really appreciated any comments from you guys!
Looking forward to hearing your advices!
