Rules of Unprofessional Conduct Applicable to Geologists:
Ignore Them At The Risk of Losing Your Hard Fought License!
Fred Eisenbud of Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP
Once you receive your New York State Professional Geologist license, you will be subject to the same rules of professional conduct as for all other licensed professions in New York State.
To ensure public protection, the New York State Education Department's Office of the Professions (OP) investigates and prosecutes professional misconduct in over 50 other licensed professions in New York State. Professional misconduct is the failure of a licensed professional to meet expected standards of practice defined in Education Law and in the Rules of the Board of Regents which includes the following:
A range of penalties for misconduct can be imposed that includes censure and reprimand, fines (up to $10K for each violation), suspensions and/or probationary terms, and possibly revocation of the professional's license.
It IS therefore incumbent upon each of us making application for licensure to become well informed and understand what professional misconduct means and the potential resultant consequences. Come join us for an evening of education, professional camaraderie and fun!!
