Church of Scotland policy—undertaking regulated work while under consideration for listing
The Recruitment Sub-Committee will risk assess any notification received by the Safeguarding Service from Disclosure Scotland, including a notification that a person is under Consideration for Listing.
When the notification from Disclosure Scotland advises that a paid worker or volunteer in post is currently being considered for listing it is the Church of Scotland's policy that the person is asked to step down from undertaking regulated work until the case can be risk assessed by the Recruitment Sub-Committee.
The Recruitment Sub-Committee can make the following recommendations:
- To take no action
- To impose a precautionary administrative suspension, to be reviewed by the Sub-Committee on a three-month rolling basis
- To take no immediate action but to reconsider the matter at further meeting on a date within the next three months
- To recommend that a person is not suitable for regulated work
