Be Aware If You Do Not Renew And Attempt To Work Without A License (Lapsed Licensure - No Licensure)

At the February 2007 meeting the Board discussed guidelines for legal counsel to take actions against individuals who have worked without proper license. The Board charged legal counsel and staff to issue Agreed Orders to those individuals found to have worked illegally, with suspensions of up to two (2 weeks) and fines up to $750 ($50 per day). Any other lapse for therapist fined over $750 and suspended more than two (2) weeks; would need approval by the Board at its next scheduled meeting before a license could be reissued or reinstated, to work again.

Online KY Status Verification Now Available
