Filing a Complaint


Complaints are given to the licensee for his/her review and opportunity to provide a response.  Complaints are reviewed by a probable cause investigator or reviewed by non-board member staff who drafts a letter of recommendation for the Board’s review.  After review, one of the following decisions is made regarding disposition of the complaint:  write letter to complainant dismissing complaint; request additional information before accepting complaint; determine probable cause exists and recommend notice of hearing and disciplinary complaint be served upon licensee; or turn complaint over to a sub-committee of the Board for settlement conference and/or informal investigation conference.  The Board expects complaints to be filed only after thorough and complete investigation and cannot accept additional information once a formal Notice of Hearing is issued.  Complaints become public record if and when a disciplinary hearing is held or a consent agreement is negotiated for the purpose of disciplinary action and, therefore, reportable to all relevant databanks and/or organizations.  The party who filed the complaint will be notified of the final disposition of that complaint.
