All staff must complete an MOJ Criminal History check as a mandatory pre-employment requirement. Maintaining a clean criminal record is a requirement for employment at Traject. This is because our primary customers are government agencies. And as per our agreement with the ministries, we must uphold the same high standard of due-dilligence for hiring employees. Because it may take up to six weeks for a criminal background check to be returned. All employee agreements signed during that period are contingent on the outcome of a MOJ Criminal History Check.
To request a Criminal History Check, we follow the process laid out here: https://www.justice.govt.nz/criminal-records/get-someone-elses/
All of the outcomes of the Criminal History Check are stored in our operations folder on google drive and in staff files.
