Every hired employee becomes part of the system that you run. Not all people, however, have good intentions. The scary thing about that is you might never know until it’s too late.
The law allows employers to undertake police checks on their employees. As the owner of the company, it is your responsibility to make sure that each addition to your team poses no threat to you and your employees.
What is a Police Check?
A national police check is one way to screen your new hires pre-employment. Applicable to Australian citizens or any resident of Australia, a police check gives you a summary of a person’s police history information and criminal records. The government provides the police check services to individuals or organisations for employment, voluntary work and job-related registration or licensing purposes.

It’s All About Minimising Risks
Risk management should be at the core of every growing company. No matter how polished and courteous an employee may seem during an interview, it is much better to be sure about their performance prior to applying for the job.
Police checks determine if employees have previous records of theft, fraud or other significant criminal activities that could potentially pose threats to your business. While not all employees with records are harmful to a business, it is good to engage them in a conversation regarding their errors. Be upfront with them and aim to resolve misconceptions and reporting errors when necessary.
