Penalties for Violations

Committing any violation listed on the prior pages carries severe penalties. An individual's clinical laboratory license can be suspended or permanently revoked, and fines can range from $300 to $10,000 per offense. A license can also be put on probation, meaning the individual may continue to practice but under limited circumstances.

In addition, some violations listed in the previous pages carry criminal charges. These include:

  • Felonies (3rd degree)
    • Practicing as clinical laboratory personnel without an active license
    • Using a suspended or revoked license to practice
    • Attempting to obtain a license by misrepresentation
  • Misdemeanors (1st degree)
    • Concealing information relating to violations on the preceding pages
    • Lying to the Board
    • Misrepresenting oneself as a licensed clinical laboratory practitioner
