What happens after the investigation is complete?
The investigator will submit a report along with all gathered evidence to the Board. The Board will review this report for probable cause, meaning that the evidence is sufficient to indicate that a violation of law or regulation might have occurred.
Once the Board completes its review of the report and corresponding evidence, there are a variety of outcomes:
- The Board can issue a letter stating the complaint has been closed with no action, meaning there has been no finding of a violation.
- The Board could issue an advisory letter, monetary penalty, confidential consent order, pre-hearing consent order, or a notice of informal conference.
- In rare cases, the Board will issue a summary suspension of your license.
