Dear customer, in relation to your important matter, in the digital environment there will always be a record of the proceedings that have occurred. In regards ***** ***** matters, a conviction does not need to be disclosed unless the employer requests that detail in an application form. If you are intending to work in the financial services industry there is mandatory disclosure requirements that do need to be compiled with. Generally, most employers at this time do not raise questions in relation to previous convictions. Where a employer does act unreasonably you may have a claim against that party for discrimination.

If you need any help on this important matter, I would be please to assist you further.

If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Please don’t forget to leave positive feed back.

Kind regards
John Melis
