Posted March 3rd, 2015 in immigration, news, regulations, visas by sally

‘A new set of rules for visitors to the United Kingdom has been introduced to take effect on all applications made on or after 24 April 2015. The changes are brought about by Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules HC 1025. The changes were billed in advance as a simplification of the old rules. Closer inspection reveals a reduction in the number of categories of visitor but a great deal of added complexity to the way the rules are drafted and a new set of sub-appendices to the appendices. The Home Office is unique in the universe for its immunity to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, it seems.’

Disclosure and Barring Service checks: an individual’s rights – Halsbury’s Law Exchange

Posted March 3rd, 2015 in criminal records, data protection, disclosure, employment, news, vetting by sally

‘Another of my articles has considered s56 of the Data Protection Act, which makes it an offence for an employer to compel a current or prospective employee to make a data subject access request. These subject access requests can reveal an individual’s spent criminal convictions as well as other sensitive personal information, and are therefore highly invasive and potentially highly prejudicial to an individual’s employment prospects.’
