Will I Get Hired if I Have a Criminal Record?

Employers’ use of criminal record information in making employment decisions is subject to the applicable laws and regulations in the country of your employment. Typically employers will review the criminal record and the circumstances around it (with input from you) before reaching a decision. The process for finalising their decision will vary from employer to employer. If you have questions about how a criminal record would be handled please ask your prospective / current employer.

You should contact your prospective / current employer to discuss their review process as it relates to the evaluation of criminal records.
