Changes to the Vetting and Barring Scheme
As highlighted previously, the new Vetting and Barring Scheme, set up by the Independent Safeguarding Authority, is designed to ensure that unsuitable individuals are not allowed to work with children and vulnerable adults.

There have however, been some complaints about the requirements of the scheme and the Government has undertaken a review.

It has changed the definition of 'regular' contact with the same group of children or vulnerable adults to mean once a week, rather than once a month as it had originally been defined.

There have also been delays in its implementation and now ISA-registration for the Vetting and Barring Scheme does not start for new workers or those moving jobs until July 2010 and ISA-registration does not become mandatory for these workers until November 2010. All other staff will be phased into the scheme from 2011.

If you are an employer needing to staff or volunteers to be registered, you should review your employment policies and documentation accordingly to ensure that they reflect the new arrangements. For advice or assistance, please contact Cherington HR.
