Have you or your spouse served in the US military?

Senate Bill 7 provides temporary or permanent reciprocity for an individual on military duty in Ohio or that individual’s spouse if the individual holds a license to practice the trade issued by any other state or jurisdiction, the individual is in good standing in that state or jurisdiction, and the individual provides adequate proof of the military duty or the spouses’ military duty.  Further, the law also instructs the Commission to expedite the licensure process for military-related individuals, including service members, veterans, and spouses or surviving spouses of service members or veterans. 

The Military Status Form should accompany all casino-gaming-employee or key-employee applications for individuals that fall into any of the categories mentioned above.  This form, along with the required documentation, will provide the Commission with the necessary information to determine an individual’s eligibility for reciprocity or to have their license application expedited. 

Request for Disqualification Information

Pursuant to Senate Bill 255 of the 132nd General Assembly, an individual who has been convicted of any criminal offense may request, at any time, that the Commission determine whether the conviction disqualifies the individual from obtaining a license issued by the Commission. (ORC 9.78). To do so, an individual must complete the Request for Licensing Disqualification Information form. Once completed, the form may be sent to the Commission in any of the manners indicated on the form. Upon receipt of a complete form, the Commission has up to 30 days to inform the individual, based on the criminal-record information submitted, if the individual is disqualified from licensure. Please note, the Commission is not bound by this determination; if, through further investigation, the Commission determines that the individual’s criminal history differs from the information presented in the form.

In general, an individual is disqualified from licensure if the individual has been convicted of, or has pleaded guilty or no contest to, any gambling offense, any theft offense, any offense having an element of fraud or misrepresentation, any offense having an element of moral turpitude, or any other felony. (ORC 3772.07; 3772.10)
