Overview of Public Hearing on Proposed MCAD Procedural Regulations - Boston
The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (“MCAD”) hereby gives notice pursuant to M.G.L. c. 30A, § 2 of a series of public hearings to be held on proposed changes to its Rules of Procedure found at 804 CMR 1.00 et seq., promulgated pursuant to its authority under M.G.L. c. 151B, § 3 and M.G.L. c. 151C, § 5. The MCAD has revised all 25 sections of 804 CMR 1.00 to improve readability and reflect current MCAD practice and procedure. The revisions include a reordering of the sections to sequence how a complaint moves through the MCAD process, as well as substantive changes to the rules with respect to motion practice, rebuttals, the timeline for housing complaints, mediations, and more. An electronic copy of the proposed regulations can be found on the MCAD Statutes and Regulations webpage.
