Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello, does an employee in the uk have the right to request paper based DBS application form and can the employer refuse (also refusing to give it in writing or allowing employee to talk to HR personally, but relaying info ) and require that employee should resign? Enhanced vetting is required because of the job and vetting has been outsourced to third party. Third party conducts it online and although first relayed infor that they do not accept paper base, later replied in email that they would accept paper based application but employee should ask HR to provide paper form. I really appreciate your advice. As I have been asked now a few times to hand in resignation. I would like to carry on working there and by no means refusing to comply , in fact am eager to supply data paper based is there relevant legislation, guidance etc, please? Thank you very much.

For Ben Jones: Thank you for your reply. Should not company disclose what they expect from employer before employing them and employee has already started working, especially if their data is to be handled by third party? Does the individual have no right to know? And does an employee not have the right to contact HR directly? many thanks.
