Background Check Statistics and Laws in Massachusetts

Background checks in Massachusetts are performed on individuals who wish to purchase firearms, rent/buy homes, and find jobs, like in other U.S. states. In 2018, 107,396-gun background checks were performed through the NICS, and more than 90% of employers in the state of Massachusetts performed job background checks on applicants. According to federal law, employers cannot perform background checks on every job applicant, because they have to ask their consent first. After applicants give their consent, employers will usually send the forms to third-party companies that perform Massachusetts background checks.

The state of Massachusetts recently enacted a “ban the box” provision that prohibits employers from asking about applicants' criminal records in the preliminary stages of the job application. As the hiring process continues, employers may ask applicants about their criminal records by following these rules:

  • Do not ask about first-time convictions for simple assault, drunkenness, minor traffic violations, speeding, affray, or disturbing the peace.
  • Do not ask about an arrest that did not result in a conviction.
  • Do not ask about "old" misdemeanor convictions – ones that happened at least five years ago (if the applicant has a conviction in the past five years, an employer may ask about it).
  • Applicants do not have to disclose information about sealed criminal records, and they may regard them as non-existent.
