Ohio Residency Rules

A prohibition against local governments forcing employees to live within city limits became law Monday, but officials in three cities sued to block it.

Lawyers for Cleveland, Akron and Youngstown filed lawsuits Monday against Gov. Bob Taft, who signed the measure in January. They say the law is unconstitutional and infringes on charter cities' home-rule powers. (via The Plain Dealer)

Is it constitutional for an employer to dictate where an employee lives? Maybe, maybe not, I’m not a lawyer.

My issue is that cities like Cleveland are fighting to force people to live there, rather than focusing on making the city a place where people would want to live (and raise families). If the city would concentrate on improving its communities and school system, this would be a non-issue.
