Presumed Guilty

I was surprised to read reports that the UK retail sector has quietly set up a register, The National Staff Dismissal Register, of staff who’ve been dismissed or left employment while under investigation for acts of dishonesty.

One wonders how many records of innocent people, perhaps wrongly or falsely accused of fraud or theft, might be lurking on such a database. No doubt it will reduce crime. But it will also provide leverage for attempts at staff harassment.
