Information to third party pre-employment checks

Ms Anthrope made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Ms Anthrope

Dear New Zealand Police,

Please advise the departments and processes involved when a third party requests information in relation to employment checks regarding a former employee.

For example a former police employee applies for a role with South Australia Police and SAPOL conduct their checks.

Where does their integrity request go and what information is released to them.

Yours faithfully,

Ms Anthrope
