Has your license been unexpectedly suspended?

We are always on the lookout for information we believe is share worthy. The article we found in the Construction Industry Licensing Board Newsletter is one such informational piece. You can see the entire newsletter by clicking here. Read on below for what to do if you suddenly find your license suspended.

“Has your Florida contractor’s license been suspended unexpectedly and you aren’t sure why? If so, there is a possibility that the suspension is for failing to comply with disciplinary actions taken against your license by the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) or failure to comply with the terms of probation on your license.  If the CILB has taken disciplinary action against your license or placed your license on a term of probation, you may have items that required your compliance in order to maintain your license in a current active status. For example, you may have outstanding fines and/or investigative costs you owe to the Department; or you may have failed to provide proof of restitution made to a homeowner. If you were given a period of probation, you may not have complied with the terms of that probation. You may have even been ordered to take additional continuing education hours, but haven’t provided proof that they have been completed.

Please feel free to contact the Department to obtain information regarding your license status and to assist you with achieving compliance with the CILB’s requirements.  If you have outstanding fines, investigative costs or other unresolved disciplinary issues, please contact the Department at 850.487.1395 to make payment arrangements or to be put in touch with CILB staff. If you have received a notification letter of your suspension and have already made payment, you must provide proof of such to the Executive Director of the CILB. Please be sure to follow up with Department staff by contacting the CILB office to ensure that your suspension is lifted once you have complied with any outstanding discipline.
