Maine Background Checks Laws

Arrest Records

Non-conviction records may be accessed by employers only with the express authorization of a court or statute or to determine the suitability of prospective law enforcement officers. Employers may obtain criminal history records for individuals currently within the judicial system. Employers may also confirm criminal records through inquiries as to specific individuals, charges and dispositions. Pre-detention records (i.e., time and place of arrest, name of arrested individual, and attendant circumstances) are in the public domain.

Conviction Records

Maine employers have free access to conviction records. However, the use of the criminal record information may be invalidated if it adversely affects members of a protected class, unless the employer can demonstrate the relationship of such a selection procedure to performance on the job.

Use Of Social Media In Maine Pre-Employment Screening

Maine law prohibits employers from demanding employees or applicants to reveal their usernames or passwords linked to social networking sites.
