Nowadays criminal background checks are conducted for employment, housing, and other purposes. A potential employer or a private company may conduct a review of your criminal record (CORI) and/or your credit record; driving record; educational background, etc.

Help Is Available

If you are having problems obtaining employment or housing because of a criminal record background check, sign up for a private, one-on-one information session with representatives from the Volunteer Lawyers Project, who are available at JobNet Boston twice per month to conduct a private review of CORI.

Get a Copy of Your CORI

For help with your CORI review you must bring a recent copy of your criminal record. Request a copy of your CORI online or at the JobNet front desk.

Meet for a Private Review

To set up a private review session, call JobNet at 617-338-0809.


Legal staff from the Volunteer Lawyers Project are at JobNet twice a month, on Wednesday from 10:00 AM till 2:00 PM by appointment (30 minute sessions).
