Reasons Why People Lose their Professional License
Professionals like lawyers, doctors, therapists, and teachers, among other professionals, must follow ethical and legal rules. If somebody reports a professional to the board or the professional otherwise gets in trouble, they may have their license suspended or, in the worst-case scenario, revoked altogether. They may then not be able to work in their industry anymore and have to start from scratch with a new career.
A professional could get their license taken away temporarily or permanently and have to pay monetary fines for a wide variety of reasons. Typically, they involve a criminal conviction, fraud, or malpractice.
One example of misconduct would be if a professional misappropriated money from a client, even temporarily. Another example is if a professional has a substance abuse issue that impacts performance o. Falsely advertising services, participating in sexual misconduct, or abusing customers could also qualify. Additionally, if a professional is convicted of a crime, they could lose their license if the conviction is for a licensing regulation violation.
What to Do If You’re Facing Suspension or Revocation
The first thing to do if your license is threatened is to contact a Long Beach professional license defense and administrative law attorney, like Robin D. Perry. They will let you know exactly how to respond to the accusations.
Keep in mind that you should never respond to accusations or requests from the board on your own because you could say or do the wrong thing. Don’t give them your professional records or any other evidence without consulting your attorney first. If an investigator comes to your office, don’t give them any details or hand over records. Just politely tell them that you have an attorney who will work with the investigative agency and professional board.
It’s also important to never contact the person who made the claim against you, because it’ll seem like you’re trying to intimidate the person to withdraw their claim. On that note, you should not initiate a lawsuit against them either.
