Please read the following statements; they constitute the conditions under which you would be employed for Paul Revere Transportation LLC should you be accepted for employment.
Lie Detector Test
Massachusetts General Law c.149 s19B requires that the following statement be included on employment applications: “It is unlawful in Massachusetts to require or administer a lie detector test as a condition of employment or continued employment. An employer who violates this law shall be subject to criminal penalties and civil liability.”
Massachusetts General Law c.151B defines “genetic information” as any written record or explanation of a genetic test of a person’s family history with regard to the presence, absence or variation of a gene. A genetic test is broadly defined as “any test of DNA, RNA, mitochondrial DNA, chromosome or proteins for the purpose of identifying genes or genetic abnormalities.” The law expressly excludes drug and alcohol tests from this definition, meaning that employers may continue to conduct such tests in accordance with existing legal requirements.
These new statutory provisions specifically prohibit employers from (1) terminating or refusing to hire individuals on the basis of genetic information; (2) requesting genetic information concerning employees, applicants or their family members; (3) attempting to induce individuals to undergo genetic tests or otherwise disclose genetic information; (4) using genetic information in any way that affects the terms and condition of an individual’s employment; or (5) seeking, receiving or maintaining genetic information for any non-medical purpose.
I understand the information I provide regarding current and/or previous employers may be used, and those employer(s) will be contacted, for the purpose of investigating my safety performance history as required by 49 CFR 391.23 (d) and (e).
I understand that I have the right to:
Review Information provided by previous employers; Have errors in the information corrected by previous employers and for those previous employers to re-send the corrected information to the prospective employer; and
Have a rebuttal statement attached to the alleged erroneous information, if the previous employer(s) and I cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.
