803 CMR 11.05 - Procedures for Requesting Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI)

(1) For purposes of submitting a CORI request to screen its own employees, a CRA shall be considered an employer as that term is referenced in 803 CMR 2.00: Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI).
(2) Prior to submitting a CORI request to screen its own current or prospective employees, a CRA shall obtain a signed CORI Acknowledgement Form and follow all procedures related to the CORI Acknowledgment Form and verification of identity procedures as set forth in 803 CMR 2.11: Requirements for Requestors to Request CORI.
(3) A CRA shall not be required to obtain a separate CORI Acknowledgment Form provided, however, that it has incorporated the Massachusetts CRA CORI Acknowledgement language, published by DCJIS, on its existing form and the fields on the DCJIS CORI Acknowledgment Form are included either on the CRA form or in the subject's application.
(4) A CORI Acknowledgement Form may be collected electronically in accordance with the provisions of 803 CMR 2.12: Electronic Submission of CORI Acknowledgment Forms.
(5) After a period of one year, a new CORI Acknowledgement Form shall be obtained from the subject. Subsequent CORI requests are subject to the procedures related to subsequent verification of identity as set forth in 803 CMR 2.13: Identity Verification Exemption for Subsequent CORI Checks.
(6) Nothing in 803 CMR 11.00 shall be construed to prohibit a CRA or an iCORI-registered client from making an adverse licensing, employment, or housing decision on the basis of a subject's refusal to consent to a lawful request for CORI.
