On May 4, 2012, major changes are coming that will require all Massachusetts employers conducting criminal background checks to reassess their practices. As we reported previously, the Massachusetts Legislature overhauled the Criminal Offender Record Information ("CORI") statute in 2010, imposing a host of new requirements for users and providers of criminal history to be phased in over time. A few days ago, the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services ("DCJIS") issued 84 pages of Proposed Regulations implementing the last of the new requirements and announced a public hearing on the draft regulations scheduled for March 30, 2012. Seyfarth Shaw invites you to join us at 8:00 a.m. on April 4, 2012, for a Breakfast Briefing, where our experts will provide an overview of the requirements which go into effect on May 4, 2012, an analysis of the proposed regulations, and an update on the DCJIS’s public hearing.
