Just seen a job advertised where an Enhanced CRB check is a requirement, but the employer is asking potential employees to pay the £44 cost of the check. All of the jobs I have applied for the employers have always paid the checks. Not sure what I think about this, seems wrong somehow. If uniform is a requirement then my understanding is that the employer is responsible for paying, but employees can be asked to pay for CRB. Thoughts?

Who should pay for CRB checks, Employees or Employers?

There are lots of things that I want to write about, but I don’t have much time at the moment. Hopefully some interesting things to come…

Still to come…

Just saw on BBC News that the IFS is saying that more cuts are coming from the Dept. for Education, and that Youth Services and Early Years will take brunt of cuts. How can youth services take any more cuts? My observation is that youth services have already been decimated and everything of value already cut.
