Suspended from work on no pay, whilst my DBS (enhanced) renewal is processed. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice. I have been employed by the same organisation for almost 14 years. When I first started working for them we were not required to apply for a CRB / DBS (enhanced) check, but it became a requirement for most roles within our organisation. The details on all of my DBS checks have not changed. We are required to apply for and renew our DBS’s every three years. My organisation has recently altered its policy document in respect of these disclosures as part of its new recruitment of staff initiative. It declares that all staff who allow their DBS (enhanced) checks to run out and are waiting for an upto date DBS renewal to arrive, will be suspended on no pay. I have currently been suspended on no pay. I find myself in limbo, as although I use the online check about 5 times every day - it gives me no idea of why my check is taking so long and more to the point when the new check will arrive. I can ring an 0300 number which directs me to the DBS service in Liverpool. Every day I speak to them - but they cannot send a request to the Police until my check has been with them for 60 days. Currently, my own DBS renewal has been with the Police for 57 days. I am beginning to pull my hair out, as I am a single father, with two children, a mortgage, car and other commitments and currently feel a little as though I have no control over this situation. I would appreciate any advice. Many thanks.
