WAC 308-124I-040

Review of complaints of unprofessional conduct.

(1) Complaints are reviewed to determine if the allegations in the complaint describe an apparent violation of the laws the department administers. Staff may perform some fact-finding for the purposes of determining whether the complaint likely has merit. Even if the complaint is deemed to have merit, the department may decide not to investigate it for reasons such as the gravity of the alleged violation or the resources and priorities of the department.
(2) Department-initiated complaints will be referred to the investigation or audit section. If the complaint is deemed to merit further review, it will be assigned to an investigator or auditor.
(3) During the course of an investigation or audit, if the department's auditor or investigator discovers evidence of additional violations outside the allegations of the complaint, the auditor or investigator may investigate and request records and detailed explanations from the licensee regarding those additional violations.
