Disclosure Scotland is aware that some employers are not finding it easy to determine if an application is routine or fits the coronavirus response worker criteria.
As a result of this Disclosure Scotland have updated their website with new guidance .
Now the country is in recovery, Disclosure Scotland expect most applications will be routine, however if your applicant meets all three of the criteria below they will be eligible for a free priority coronavirus response worker application:
- only needs a disclosure because of their coronavirus work
- in a role only supporting the response to coronavirus
- working in a qualifying sector
All coronavirus response worker applications are being reviewed to ensure they meet the criteria.
If a submitted application does not meet the criteria, it will be returned and a new routine application will need to be submitted and the normal fee will be chargeable.
