What is the name of your state? Ohio
I have 5 or 6 misdemeanors on my record and I have read that "Federal Law" states an employer can only go back 7 years and use anything found w/in the last 7 years to determine employment. Is this true and how does this work? Does this override state laws? What are the Ohio laws regarding this?
If an employer does a background check won't they get my entire background, not just the last 7 years? It's all public information..
If an application asks me about my criminal background, is there a law that says I have to answer it? Usually I do answer it because I figure they can find out easily online these days.. But isn't this discrimination?
