§4011. Employment reference immunity


(REALLOCATED FROM TITLE 20-A, SECTION 4010)





An employee of a school administrative unit who discloses information about a former
employee's job performance or work record to a prospective employer of the former
employee is presumed to be acting in good faith and, unless lack of good faith is
shown by clear and convincing evidence, is immune from civil liability for such disclosure
or its consequences. "Clear and convincing evidence of lack of good faith" means
evidence that clearly shows the knowing disclosure, with malicious intent, of false
or deliberately misleading information. This section is supplemental to and not in
derogation of any claims available to the former employee that exist under state law
and any protections that are already afforded employers under state law. [RR 2011, c. 1, §26 (RAL).]
