  • Clean Slate Act 2004

    Allows an employee with certain minor convictions to move on from the past and not have their chances of employment limited. This means if a person meets the criteria for the Clean Slate scheme their minor convictions are automatically concealed and they are deemed to have no criminal record.

    Under the Clean Slate Act 2004 an employer cannot force a potential candidate to reveal minor convictions from seven years ago or longer that did not lead to jail time. Employers do have options to confirm this information but they must get written permission from the candidate first.
