Ohio Background Checks Laws

Ohio state law mandates that schools, day care centers, health care facilities, and others require background checks to be hired. In Ohio some individuals may be required to have a background check in order to receive a professional license.

Arrest Records

Employers cannot question an applicant about an expunged juvenile arrest record. Additionally, the Ohio Civil Rights Commissions Pre-Employment Inquiry Guide cautions that employers should avoid any inquiry that would reveal an arrest without a conviction.

Conviction Records

Employers may not question applicants about sealed convictions unless the question bears a direct and substantial relationship to the position for which the person is being considered. The Ohio Civil Rights Commissions Pre-Employment Inquiry Guide states that employers may ask about specific crimes related to qualifications for a particular job. 

Arrest or conviction for a minor misdemeanor violation in regards to marijuana does not constitute a criminal record and need not be reported by the person so arrested or convicted in response to any inquiries about the person’s criminal record including any inquiries contained in an application for employment.

Ohio is an “At-Will” State

In Ohio, employees are presumed to be “at will.” At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it’s not illegal. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract. However, in Ohio, the terms of termination can be changed if the parties’ conduct shows a clear intent to impose different conditions.
