Kenyans applying for jobs won’t need KRA, CRB, EACC, DCI clearance

Clearance Certificates in Kenya: Kenyans applying for jobs with the government will no longer be required to provide clearance certificates from the Kenya Revenue Authority, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, HELB, and the EACC.

This is after President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday signed into law the Employment Amendment Bill. This Bill had been sponsored in parliament by nominated MP Gideon Keter.

“Previously, job seekers were faced with the responsibility of running criminal background checks on themselves so as to secure a mere job interview,” Keter said.

“However, now a cure has come through the amendment, whereby an employer shall no longer perceive job seekers as criminals before they apply for a job.”

He added that employers will now no longer ask for documents like Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Directorate of Criminal Investigations(DCI) Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) clearance certificates, until or unless an offer of employment is guaranteed.

“Once a person is guaranteed employment, they can discuss with the employer on how they would present their certificates,” said Keter.

“This is a clear indication that they have been milking job seekers, a majority who are youth. As a country we should pick some of the best practices from other jurisdictions that have relieved their graduates from the financial burden like the United Kingdom.”
