Privacy ?

Privacy ?

It's that time of year again. Long summer days. Some of us may be looking for new employment opportunities. I just got off the phone with a long time friend who is looking to make an employment change.

That conversation brought to mind the last time I applied for a new job and the rigamarole that entails. I couldn't remember the guidelines for CORI checks so I decided to look that up.

There's a lot of information online at iCORI Frequently Asked Questions .

An interesting piece of information I discovered is that anyone can do a self audit for FREE! 

I got to thinking this Self Audit might be a good thing to do. Like checking your credit score on a periodic basis. Here is the LINK.

The form does need to be notarized.

So what is an "expectation of privacy"? 

So what does that mean?

 Terms and Conditions of CORI:


Looks like there are some pretty significant consequences, if M.G.L. c. 6, §172 is not followed correctly.

"..., shall, for each offense, be punished by imprisonment in a jail or house of correction for not more than one year or by fine of not more than $5,000."

"A requestor that uses CORI to commit a crime against, OR TO HARASS, another individual may be subject to the criminal penalties set forth in M.G.L. c. 6, §178 1⁄2, including imprisonment in a jail or house of correction for not more than one year and a fine of not more than $5,000.0."

Interesting information. It may be a good idea to do a Self Audit!

Have a great day.

  1. How ironic ! You can volunteer for a position to help your town, and assume that your privacy will not be violated, or not ! Like I always say, what you do, comes back to you..
