Employees Can Put Your Professional License at Risk

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Jun 04, 2024 | 0 Comments

While employers don't usually have control over their employees' off-duty conduct, they may be liable for it if there is a connection between it and the employer's business or the employee's job. Not only does this mean that employers may have the right to punish their employees for off-duty conduct, but they can potentially be punished for their employee's off-duty conduct.  

As such, there are instances where employees cost their employer their professional license. For instance, when a nurse is accused of stealing from a patient, their professional license can be revoked or restricted. If the employer knew of the nurse's behavior and did not report her to the state's nursing board, their medical license may be in jeopardy.  

If you or someone you love has had their professional license affected by an employee, they must contact an attorney immediately. The Lento Law Firm Professional License Defense Team understands how overwhelming these hearings can be for employers. Call our offices today at 888-535-3686 or schedule a consultation online.  

Employer Professional License in Jeopardy 

Other ways that employees can put an employer's professional license at risk include reporting them for incidents of misconduct that never happened. For example, a daycare attendant may falsely report their employer for leaving the children in the facility without supervision. The facility could potentially lose its business license, and the employer could lose their professional license.  

In fact, in late February 2024, Kids Kampus Daycare, a non-profit daycare in Evansville, Wyoming, was allowed to renew its business license after parents reported the daycare for unsafe learning conditions. One parent reported that a two-year-old child had wandered away from the daycare and was found walking down the street toward the highway. Another parent reported that they were not notified when their child got a concussion while at the daycare.  

The executive director of the Casper Housing Authority, which oversees Kids Kampus, stated that the school was taking measures to address parent concerns. However, she has stated that the center is a training center, where newer directors can be trained into the director the center truly needs. Unfortunately, when those employees do not work out, she believes they report the center for things they are disgruntled about. Putting their business and professional licenses in jeopardy for no reason.
