2017/10/20 – Self-Disclosure of Criminal Convictions Policy edits - Human Resources at Ohio State

Self-Disclosure of Criminal Convictions Policy edits

The Self-Disclosure of Criminal Conviction Policy, which helps promote a safe and secure environment for the Ohio State community, has been edited to better align with the Activities and Programs with Minor Participants Policy.

The updated policy requires individuals working in activities and programs with minor participants to self-disclose criminal convictions, which is current practice and required by the Activities and Programs with Minors Policy.

All current faculty, staff, graduate associates and student employees, appointees, volunteers, staff provided by third party vendors, as well as individuals working in activities and programs with minor participants, are required to self-disclose criminal convictions that occur within three business days of the conviction.

Associated faculty, graduate associates, and individuals working or volunteering in activities and programs with minors participates who have a break in service of less than 12 months must disclose any convictions that occurred during the break within three business days of returning to university duties.

Criminal convictions will not necessarily bar continued involvement. Once a conviction is disclosed, a determination regarding suitability for continued involvement will be made based on information regarding the conviction.

Learn more about the Self-Disclosure of Criminal Conviction Policy 4.17 and Activities and Programs with Minor Participants Policy 1.50.
