What happens after a complaint is filed?
Just because a complaint is brought against you, doesn’t mean that you are guilty. The board is required to investigate the complaint thoroughly. An investigator will be assigned to your case, and they will research every aspect of the claim. Once they are finished, they will present their evidence to the board. Then the board will decide what the offer or resolution should be. You DO NOT have to accept the offer of resolution, but the process is more efficient with an experienced lawyer.
How else could I lose my license?
Criminal convictions need to be reported to your board. So, if you plead guilty to a DWI, you’ll need to let your board know. Then, they will investigate your case and determine if any disciplinary action is required. Every case is different, but having a lawyer represent you increases your odds for success.
What are the possible outcomes of an investigation?
There are several types of disciplinary actions that the board can decide to use in your case. You could receive a public reprimand, fines, license suspension, or license revocation. Most of these types of discipline can ruin your career. Honestly, any allegations of misconduct can destroy your career.
What happens if you’ve received allegations of misconduct?
If you receive an accusation of misconduct, you could quickly lose your job. At the very worst you could have your license revoked. An investigatior will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that the allegations are correct. During this investigation, they will look for any incriminating evidence. They want to see if there is a pattern of bad behavior while you’re at work. The investigator could also ask you for an interview or a statement. We recommend having your attorney handle any communication between you and the investigator.
Can I handle my case on my own?
You could, but we wouldn’t recommend it. This process can be very tedious. So, taking on your case puts you at a disadvantage. Hiring an attorney takes some of the stress off of you and improves your odds of winning. The board will have legal counsel, and so should you.
