A policy to 'step down' or 'filter'  criminal records should be introduced as per Sunita Mason's recent review.

Convictions should not be disclosed to employers after a specified period of time.

There is always a stigma attached to having 'been in trouble' or having made a mistake in the past.

You should not have to pay all your life for having made a mistake

Why is this idea important?

Allows all people to be treated fairly

Allows people to move on from their past

Ensures employers don't unfairly discriminate

Gives people 'another chance'
