What is an "unrelated employer"?
This is a tax question. I live in Indiana but recently started a job in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am trying to figure out if I even need to file an Ohio Income Tax Return at year end. This is information from Ohio Form IT 1040:
"Who Must File an Ohio Income Tax Return?
Every Ohio resident and every part-year resident (see page 10 of
these instructions for a discussion of “residency”) is subject to the Ohio
income tax. Every nonresident having Ohio-sourced income must also
fi le. Examples of Ohio-sourced income include the following:
Wages earned in Ohio (see “Exception” below);
Ohio lottery winnings;
Income or gain from Ohio property;
Income or gain from a sole proprietorship doing business in
Income or gain from a pass-through entity doing business in
Exception: A full-year nonresident living in a border state does not
have to fi le if the nonresident’s only Ohio-sourced income is wages
received from an unrelated employer."
So the question comes to my mind "what is an unrelated employer"?

It means that you are not employed by a family member.
You'll have to check and see how OH defines a related individual. It could cover immediate family only (mother, father, sister, brother) or extend multiple generations in any direction.

not to address your question but the point is, according to IRS, your tax home is where you work unless this is a short, temporary,less than a year assignment
if this is a permanent position you file state return where you work and non resident/part time where you live
