Newly Signed Bill Significantly Changes Personnel Records Law

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick recently signed an economic development bill that contains a significant amendment to the Massachusetts personnel records law. The new law (Chapter 240 of the Acts of 2010, section 148) implements a dramatic change in employers’ legal obligations regarding personnel records. The amendment requires employers to notify employees within 10 days of the addition to their “personnel record” of any information that is being used, has been used or may be used to negatively affect the employee’s qualification for employment, promotion, transfer, additional compensation, or may subject the employee to disciplinary action.
