Agencies have obligations to check and verify the identity of their candidates, whether those candidates are looking for permanent or temporary work.
The level and detail of information held by agencies can present a real risk in the area of identity theft.
There are steps that all agencies should take to ensure any documents or information held on candidates have the appropriate security measures applied to minimise risks in this area.
There are also obligations under the Data Protection Act to ensure appropriate security measures are in place.
