If an officer or employee of JobsOhio receives more than one thousand dollars of public money in the person's capacity as such an officer or employee, the person, on the business day next following the day of receipt, shall deposit the money into the fund or account into which the money is required to be deposited by law or the regulations of the corporation. If the amount of public money received does not exceed one thousand dollars, the person shall deposit the money on the business day next following the day of receipt unless the board of directors of JobsOhio adopts a policy permitting a different time period, not to exceed three business days next following the day of receipt, for making such deposits, and the person is able to safeguard the moneys until the money is deposited. The policy shall include provisions and procedures to safeguard public money until it is deposited.

Any officer or employee of JobsOhio who has custody or control of public money received or held by the corporation pursuant to the contract authorized under section 187.04 of the Revised Code or because of the assumption of powers, functions, or duties transferred to the corporation pursuant to the recommendations under section 187.05 of the Revised Code is liable for the public money to the same extent as a public official is liable for public money under section 9.39 of the Revised Code.
