Hiring Requirements: Massachusetts

A Q&A guide to state law on hiring requirements for private employers in Massachusetts. This Q&A addresses disclosures that employers must make to new hires, the type of information to include in the notice, when and how notice should be sent, language to include in employment applications, and information that cannot be requested on employment applications. Federal, local, or municipal law may impose additional or different requirements. Answers to questions can be compared across a number of jurisdictions (see Hiring Requirements: State Q&A Tool).
