Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2013 comes into force
Implementation date: 29 May 2013
The order changes the range of spent convictions and cautions covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (SI 1975/1023), so that some spent convictions and cautions do not have to be disclosed by candidates for a role and may not be taken into account by employers when making recruitment decisions. The order is made following the Court of Appeal judgment in R (on the application of T) v Chief Constable of Greater Manchester and others  EWCA Civ 25 CA. The order can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
