Employer Guide: DBS Checks In Hospitality

DBS Checks In Hospitality roles are a great way of helping employers to make the right decision in the recruitment process.

Generally speaking, Hospitality roles, such as those in Hotels or Restaurants, can only get a Basic DBS Check. However, if the role involves regulated activity with vulnerable adults or children, it could be eligible for an Enhanced DBS Check with the relevant Barred List.

Basic DBS Checks In Hospitality

A Basic DBS Check (also known as Basic CRB Check) is usually the highest level of check that can be requested for jobs in the hospitality industry (such as hotel night porters, cleaners or restaurant bar staff and waiters), as they are not defined as “positions of responsibility”.

This level of check will only show the unspent convictions of the individual.

Unspent convictions are convictions, final warnings, and/or reprimands from the PNC that have not passed a specific amount of time. Once it has passed this amount of time, it is advised to treat it as if it has never happened.

There are specific convictions that will never become spent. These can include terrorism or sexual offences.

You can read more about this in our Spent & Unspent Convictions blog.
