State Legislation: Massachusetts: Background Checks

A bill (H.B. 275) pending in the Massachusetts General Court would require that employers conduct criminal history checks on employees who work as security staff in bars, clubs, or other establishments that serve alcohol. In the bill “security staff” is defined as bouncers, doormen, floor staff, or other workers performing duties related to the admission of patrons or maintaining safety and order. The background check should focus on “violent criminal history or other incidents that are strictly related to the duties of the position,” according to the bill.
