3 Things To Know About Protecting Your Professional License


The idea of losing your child care license sounds severe, like a last resort the government would pursue to protect children who are at grave risk for abuse or neglect. 

Unfortunately, losing your day care license is much easier than you think. Knowing how to take steps to protect your professional license is all that stands between you and losing your livelihood. 

As you seek to arm yourself with that knowledge, the following three pieces of info are a good place to start. 

1. Frivolous Accusations Can Result In The Loss Of Your License

When a parent hears about a provider's license being suspended or revoked, their mind drifts to terrible thoughts of abuse, neglect, or endangerment. These things sadly do happen at some day care facilities, but things as simple as disagreements over crib sheet policies and rules about diapering can get the ball rolling toward a severe punishment. 

2. You Don't Have To Wait For The Investigators To Call You

In fact, the earlier you speak to an attorney, the earlier you can protect your rights and your professional license. Some investigators behave as if the accused have no rights, so it is important to have someone working for you and asserting your rights in the face of an aggressive investigation. 

3. Accused of Maltreatment? Doing Nothing Is Kissing Your License Goodbye

Allowing the investigation to take its course after being accused of child maltreatment will almost always result in your license being taken away. The Department of Human Services (DHS) can recommend license revocations, disqualification and other actions based on the findings of their investigation. 

Whether you are accused of maltreatment, code violations or other misdeeds, you can rely on attorney Christa Groshek to stand up for you and protect your livelihood.
