Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio AG Advises Employers About Background Checks
The Ohio Attorney General is advising employers about limits to the information the state provides through criminal background checks.
The warning follows a new state law that shields information about individuals who have been arrested but not convicted.
Steve Raubenolt, deputy superintendent at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, tells The Associated Press new background checks are giving prospective employers peace of mind about someone that they shouldn’t have.
Beginning this week, the state will include a warning in its completed background checks that the information only includes convictions and guilty pleas, not arrests or charges.
Raubenolt says the new law also is requiring hand checks of criminal records that are creating a backlog of reports.
That backlog has slowed hiring by the state casino control commission.
