Rejected petition employee shouldn’t be allowed to reject you for a role due to credit rating

we are in the worst recession in history, hundreds of thousand have lost jobs due to covid and this has effected loads of people finances and credit.

you should not be rejected for a job role due to bad credit. how are you supposed to get back into a healthy financial situation if you are rejected due to a bad credit rating.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

The Government of Wales Act 2006 establishes the extent of the Senedd’s power to make new laws and amend existing law (also known as legislative competence). Schedules 7A and 7B of the 2006 Act set out the issues which are ‘restricted’ or ‘reserved’ - i.e. areas where the UK Parliament, not the Senedd, can legislate.

There are several reservations in the Government of Wales Act 2006 which restrict the Senedd’s ability to legislate on employment matters.

As a result, it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action called for by your petition.

Further information about the legislative powers of the Senedd can be found here:

You may wish to consider petitioning the UK Parliament regarding this matter instead:
