Periodic application for Certificate of Conduct: a tool for employers

Employers should not rely solely on Certificates of Conduct (VOGs) when assessing the reliability of job candidates, according to legal experts Jan Dop and Erika van Zadelhof. VOGs, which detail an individual's criminal record, are a "snapshot" and offer "false security", the pair wrote in Dutch legal publication Accountancy Vanmorgen. They suggested that periodic applications for VOGs could help employers ensure staff remain suitable for their roles, but warned that this would not cover all risks, as employees could still commit offences. Continuous screening is required in certain industries, including childcare and taxi services.
