Records Related to Ongoing Investigations
The MCAD issued Guidelines on Public Records on December 28, 2016, which describe how the Commission responds to public records requests. The Guidelines explain the Commission’s practice to withhold active complaints from the general public while the complaint is under investigation. The guidelines are available to download at the bottom of this page.
The newly proposed MCAD regulations, initially released for public comment on January 14, 2019, may be found on the MCAD Statute and Regulations web page.
