The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) and special investigators from the county police department will use a wide-range of tactics to catch contractors either performing construction work without a license or licensed contractors violating construction laws, such as operating without a permit, license renting, or improper workers’ compensation coverage for employees. The tactics by the enforcement agencies include sting operations, commercial check points, construction site sweeps, and reviews of local construction advertisements.
The Importance of License Defense
Claims or allegation against contractor’s licenses or lack thereof is a serious offense, and it is imperative that a contractor license defense lawyer in Bradenton represent you or your business throughout violation proceedings with the DBPR. Severe penalties, including fines, restitution, criminal charges and jail time may be administered following allegations of fraud, misrepresentation of your business, or endangerment to the public. Expert representation should be chosen immediately following notification that a claim has been made against your business.
If a violation is assessed, the contractor must act in accordance with the administrative procedures of the DBPR. If corrections are not made to the job site or willful or habitual behavior is discovered, permanent license revocation may occur as a result. To avoid this, speak with a contractor license defense attorney in Bradenton, who can represent you or your business in front of the DBPR and the Construction Industry Licensing Board.
