New Ohio Law Makes It Easier For People With Criminal Convictions to Get A Job By Lifting Collateral Sanctions

Our October 8, 2012 blog post discussed recent changes in Ohio's expungement law. Contemporaneous to expanding expungement eligibility, the Ohio legislature added the concept of a Certificate of Qualification for Employment ("CQE").  R.C. §2953.25 now allows individuals with a criminal conviction who thereby are barred from certain types of employment  to file a Petition for a CQE to lift the "collateral sanction" that stops them from being considered for certain types of employment such as a Casino Gaming employee, Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse, Dentist, Optometrist and Real Estate Broker.
