Union claims £1,500 for delay in checks

A Coventry social worker is demanding nearly £1,500 in
compensation from the Criminal Records Bureau after she lost three
weeks’ wages due to delays in her police checks being

Philomena Brown’s Unison office has written to the
CRB’s complaints department asking for a speedy settlement of
her claim. John Young, a steward at Unison’s Coventry branch,
said: “This person was in limbo for three weeks, not being
able to start her new job and not knowing what was going on. It was
very stressful for her and we’ve pointed out the error of the
CRB’s ways.”
