Hi again, wondering if you knowledgeable people can answer this and help me;

 

 

My current employer has agreed to me leaving (PILON). They have agreed a factual reference which I have a draft of, which pretty much states that I was good at my job, well respected which I'm fine with. Now, there is a final written warning on my record which was for a year and falls of on X date. They have included a paragraph stating this and also stating that it was not due to competency. They add that there have been no further issues or concerns regarding my conduct. Now due to my line of work I would expect this.

 

 

They have agreed to provide a reference without this paragraph if a reference is requested after X date.

 

 

To put things in context, worked there for 20 years no issues. Started my own company, and also allegedly worked on said company during a period of sick leave and did not disclose a potential conflict of interest early enough. Naïve and stupid etc but all done and dusted.

 

 

I have 2 questions

 

 

The application form for the job I'm applying for asks if I have EVER been subject to any investigation, hearings, warnings, complaints or investigations (2nd mention) by any employer, agency or professional body? - The only thing that has happened is what I've said in this post. I want to answer truthfully but is my whole working life history any of their business. My instinct is to let them know what has happened in the past 2 years but is there a statute of limitations type thing regarding this?

 

 

When they request the reference they will obviously ask my employer to complete a questionnaire that asks specifically if I was subject to any disciplinary or given any warnings about my conduct during my time with them, are they obliged to go into detail?

 

 

I really don't want to rule myself out of being employed by being too forth coming but at the same time don't want to lie or be misleading.

 

 

Advice much appreciated.

Depends on the line of work.....


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Hi Emmzzi, it's Nursing (NHS). Apart from the issues I mentioned there is nothing else. These were the only issues in my whole carer or career even redface.png

So that I think makes it a moral/ ethical and "will I get caught and be dismissed for breakdown of trust" question. Not a legal one.

 

Up to you and your conscience.

If it's any help someone I know was on a final warning (ridiculously petty issues) and went for an interview for a new job in the same line of work. She was asked about disciplinaries. She told the interviewer what had happened. She got the job because she was honest about it. :)

^^Agreed

 

Honesty is always the best policy and where it has nothing to do with competency or resident safety it should not be an issue

So glad it worked out for you. It's how you do your job that your new employers are interested in, and as long as they know about your business and aren't worried by it, there should be no problem.

 

Good luck with the job. :)
