Which DBS check do I need? – Agricultural Labourer

As an agricultural labourer your employment process may involve a basic DBS check. A basic DBS check requires a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions in your name.

If it is included as part of the employment process, a basic DBS check for an agricultural labourer can be used to confirm your suitability for the role.

DBS checks are a nationally recognised security measure your employer can use under safeguarding obligations set out in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act to ensure their employment processes are safe and robust.

Your work as an agricultural labourer will not require you to engage in unsupervised contact with the public so your CRB check will delve no further than previous criminal convictions and conditional cautions and your employer can’t ask you to complete any other level of DBS check.
