Massachusetts Law Update

Posted in News Articles on 10/01/2010

Effective November 4, 2010 Massachusetts law prevents employers from asking questions on an initial written application about criminal offender record information.  Employers may inquire about an applicant’s criminal history after the initial written application during a subsequent in-person interview or later in the hiring process.

BackTrack has modified the standard release authorization to address this change to the law.
