Employers' guidance on recruiting people with conflict-related convictions

Date published: 01 March 2012

This guidance is for all employers in the public, private and
voluntary sectors. It has been developed by a working group
co-chaired by Sir George Quigley and Nigel Hamilton and
comprising representatives of government departments, the
Irish Congress of Trades Unions, the Confederation of British
Industry and a representative group of ex-prisoners. It fulfils
the commitment to the ex-prisoners’ constituency in the Good
Friday Agreement and also the commitment given more
recently by the government in the St Andrews Agreement.
