Treasury Board’s New Reliability Screening Policy
On October 20, 2014, the Treasury Board repealed its Personnel Security Standard and replaced it with a new version that is potentially privacy invasive. The new standard requires, among other things, credit and criminal record verifications. The Institute has filed a policy grievance for each of its Treasury Board groups alleging implementation without consultation and privacy invasion. The grievance has not yet been heard.
Should your employer require that you consent to a credit or other check, you should consult with a Steward or with an Employment Relations officer.
Further updates will be posted once the grievance is heard.
