With talk of employers asking for Facebook passwords during job interviews, New England Cable News turned to our own Christopher Perry to set the record straight. What can Massachusetts employers ask during an interview and what can’t they ask? Perry cautions employers to know the laws regarding discrimination and any type of background checks using a third party. The video clip also previews changes coming in May 2012 regarding CORI laws and additional requirements for employers. Watch the interview on NECN Business below.

Bob Shea Quoted in Boston Globe Article 03/08/2012

Employment Attorney Bob SheaOn March 7th, the Boston Globe published an article on a class-action lawsuit being brought against the City of Boston and Boston Taxi fleet owners by two cab drivers. The plaintiffs believe they are being wrongly classified as independent contractors instead of employees and therefore failing to pay minimum wages and overtime, and forcing them to cover expenses associated with their jobs. MBBP employment attorney Bob Shea was quoted in the article discussing the Massachusetts Independent Contractor Law and what this lawsuit means for businesses:

Fines for noncompliance by companies are steep, ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 for first offenders. The bigger risks are private lawsuits, where plaintiffs can recover triple damages and attorney’s fees. The greatest concern for businesses using large numbers of independent contractors is a private lawsuit brought as a class action. Such a lawsuit can put a company out of business.

To read the full article, please visit the Boston Globe.

For questions on the Massachusetts Independent Contractor Law, please contact Bob Shea.

March 1, 2012 is the deadline for pre-March 2010 contracts to comply with the third-party service provider contract requirement of the Massachusetts Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth (the “Regulations”). As of March 12, 2012, all pre-March 2010 contracts with third-party service providers (with access to personal information) must require such service providers to maintain data security measures that are consistent with the Regulations and any applicable federal regulations. If any such contracts do not include the required provisions they should be amended to add the provisions.

For further information, please see our client alert on this subject. To have any service provider contracts reviewed or revised to ensure compliance with the Regulations, please contact Faith Kasparian, Michael Cavaretta, or Howard Zaharoff.
