Criminal and Sex Offender Record Information Checks

In order for an applicant to be eligible to be hired in a position that involves potential unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly, the successful applicant may be required to undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and/or a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check. Successful applicants found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible to hold such positions. The College is authorized by the Commonwealth's Criminal History Systems Board, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 167-178B, to access CORI records. The College shall refer to regulations issued by the Commonwealth's Executive Office of Health and Human Services, 101 Code of Massachusetts Regulations 15.00-15.16, as guidance when assessing employee or successful applicant CORI records. Sex Offender checks shall be performed pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 178C-178P.
