What is a referral

If an organisation has employees or volunteers doing regulated work, they have a duty to report harmful behaviour to Disclosure Scotland.

This applies whether the person is a member of the PVG scheme or not. It’s known as making a ‘referral’.

By law, employers must report harmful behaviour even if it takes place outside of work, or the employer only finds out about it after the employee or volunteer has left.
