Clean Slate: Removing Barriers to Employment with the Certificate of Qualification for Employment (CQE) and Record Sealing

 

The Cuyahoga County Office of Reentry is holding a PUBLIC training on the Certificate of Qualification for Employment and Record Sealing. Formerly Incarcerated Persons and other Community Members are welcome to attend.

The CQE can benefit individuals with criminal convictions who are ineligible for record sealing but face significant barriers to employment. Record sealing allows individuals with certain offenses to have their criminal background removed from the public record. Representatives from The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland and the Cuyahoga County Public Defender’s Office will be present to discuss their intake procedures for individuals filing a record sealing application with the Cuyahoga Common Pleas Court. Non-affiliated, volunteer attorneys will help individuals with the written portion of their CQE application.
