Collateral Sanctions

Two new certificates have been created under Ohio law that remove criminal-record-based barriers to employment, without erasing or hiding the criminal record itself. Certificates of Achievement and Employability (“CAEs”; created by House Bill 86, 2011) are available now to eligible applicants. Certificates of Qualification for Employment (“CQEs”, created by Senate Bill 337, 2012) are available now to eligible applicants. The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections manages the new online CQE application system.
