Take control of your MoJ Checks with WorkPro

New Zealand Ministry of Justice Checks are a key element of recruitment and risk management, revealing critical information about criminal and traffic conviction history.

WorkPro makes it simple to screen with MoJ Checks, providing employers with an online dashboard to request, track and store checks for more control of candidate activity and guaranteed turnaround times.

One subscription gives you access to a powerful MoJ Check platform that offers a seamless experience for candidates and a smart, cost-effective and automated solution for busy administrators.

How WorkPro MoJ Checks work

Step 1: Send your MoJ Check Request

Use your WorkPro online dashboard to send a new request to your candidate.

With each New Zealand Ministry of Justice Check request, you’ll have the option to choose a WorkPro Direct MoJ Check.

This will guarantee a 4-day turnaround, plus receive live candidate support, ability to pre-fill candidate details and the opportunity to send the MoJ Check request as part of a job package that includes other essential background checks.

Step 2: Accept or Reject Existing MoJ Check

WorkPro will then ask the candidate if they have an existing, valid MoJ Check, which they can upload if available.

Administrators can view the document and accept or reject it.

If the existing MoJ Check is accepted, it will be stored securely in your WorkPro dashboard to view anytime and the process is complete.

Step 3: Get your MoJ Check

If a new MoJ Check is needed and WorkPro Direct MoJ Check was not selected at the start, the WorkPro platform will direct the candidate directly to the New Zealand Ministry of Justice’s online portal to complete the check themselves.

In this case, the candidate will be fully responsible for completion. The WorkPro platform will send reminders to encourage them to finish it.

If the WorkPro Direct MoJ Check option was selected in Step 1, the candidate will next be prompted to complete the MoJ Check on the spot inside WorkPro. Our platform connects with the New Zealand Ministry of Justice to fast-track completion, and allow you to track and monitor progress in real-time in your WorkPro dashboard. Results are returned in 4 days.

The completed WorkPro Direct MoJ check will be stored securely in your WorkPro dashboard for reporting and compliance.

If this option is selected, candidates that do not have an existing MoJ check will be immediately prompted to complete the check on the spot within WorkPro.

How does the pricing for WorkPro's MoJ Check service work?

WorkPro’s MoJ Check service is an annual subscription fee. 

Once the service is enabled, you have a couple of options. The first option includes using the WorkPro dashboard to request, track and store your New Zealand Ministry of Justice Checks, with an intuitive interface for candidates. With every request, the WorkPro platform asks the candidate if they have an existing MoJ Check. If they do, it can be uploaded and stored. If they don’t, WorkPro will connect the candidate to The New Zealand Ministry of Justice portal to complete the check. The WorkPro platform will send automatic reminders that will invite them to upload their check to your WorkPro dashboard.

The second option is using a WorkPro Direct MoJ Check, which can be selected when submitting a new MoJ Check request. If this is selected, the candidate will still be asked for an existing document. Only if they do not have one, or their document is rejected by the administrator, are they prompted to complete the check inside WorkPro. A single per-check fee is incurred for every WorkPro Direct MoJ Check that is processed and completed – you’re not charged if this is selected and the candidate has an existing MoJ Check.

What does a Ministry of Justice Check reveal?

The Ministry of Justice Check, also known as an MoJ Check, is an New Zealand police check that verifies criminal history as well as traffic convictions that are recorded under a candidate’s name in New Zealand.

When the MoJ Check is returned, you will receive a transcript that shows all of the candidate’s records, if they have any. These results are stored securely in the WorkPro dashboard to so they can be searched and used for reporting and proving compliance later.

Can I pre-fill candidate details for them?

Yes. With a WorkPro Direct MoJ Check, you have the option of pre-filling a candidate’s details on their behalf to complete the New Zealand Ministry of Justice criminal history check.

Does WorkPro provide official MoJ Check results?

Yes. WorkPro is an accredited partner of the New Zealand Ministry of Justice.

When a WorkPro Direct MoJ Check is processed, our platform provides official, direct results from The Ministry’s database via our powerful integration. 

This allows businesses to get the benefits of WorkPro, including real-time updates, a transparent platform, live support and the ability to package MoJ Checks with other background checks and inductions modules, while also getting fast, secure results they can trust to make informed decisions.

Can I use the WorkPro platform for other background checks?

WorkPro is a powerful all-in-one platform that offers a comprehensive range of background checks to address your business, compliance and recruitment needs.

By using WorkPro, gain access to the full suite of on demand background checks. This means you can order the checks any time it suits you – giving you centralised control over your screening process.

Each background check attracts a different turnaround time and fee, and can be used to verify a wide range of critical information to help you hire the best candidates for your roles:

  • Australian Police Check: Verify a candidate’s criminal history with momentary results. Important for being able to make rapid business and recruitment decisions.
  • Employment History Check: Verify a candidate’s previous places of employment to understand if their previous experience will be suitable for your role. Some of the details we collect include dates of employment, previous positions held, salary and reasons for leaving previous roles. We typically obtain employment data dating back seven years, but for directors or senior executives, this can be extended beyond 10 years.
  • Qualification Check: Confirm the candidate’s certifications are legitimate. The institution and the highest qualification the candidate has listed are verified.
  • International Police Check: Protect yourself, your workforce and your business. Our international police checks reveal a candidate’s criminal history, regardless of where they lived in the past, part of a robust screening program.
  • Credit and Financial Check: Gain valuable insight into a candidate’s financial history and relationship with debt. Conducted via an online search of an Australian or New Zealand credit bureau, the report includes the last seven years of data. We’ll provide you with a final copy of the report for your records.

By partnering with government and private bodies, WorkPro is able to deliver background screening service when you need them, enabling you to comply with all relevant legal requirements, minimise the chances of a hiring the wrong person and ultimately protecting your business.
