If your background check returns satisfactory results, Human Resources will notify the hiring unit that the process is complete.
If your background check returns results that require additional review and are relevant to employment at OSU, you will receive outreach from the Hiring and Service Risk Assessment Committee (HSRAC) with instructions for the next steps. An individualized assessment review process will be completed by the HSRAC, which includes developing a recommendation. A final decision will be made by the designated Employee and Labor Relations lead. If it is determined that you are ineligible for a specific position, Human Resources will let you know the decision via email. Such decisions can be appealed, and instructions for how to appeal will be in the email.
Additional information about this process is available in the Review of Background Check Results and Employment / Service Eligibility Determination section on the Background Check home page.
A previous conviction does not automatically prevent an individual from being employed by OSU. "Satisfactory results" may include a history of conviction(s), which would have gone through the HSRAC individualized assessment review process and resulted in a determination that the conviction(s) did not disqualify an individual for the specific position.
