    (a) After giving opportunity for hearing, the Board may take disciplinary action against a licensee or applicant found guilty of unprofessional conduct.

    (b) In connection with any disciplinary action, the Board may:

    (1) refuse to accept the return of a license tendered by the subject of a disciplinary investigation;

    (2) refuse to license a person who has been found guilty or who is under investigation in another jurisdiction for an offense that would constitute unprofessional conduct in this State;

    (3) issue warnings to a licensee;

    (4) suspend, revoke, or reinstate licenses;

    (5) notify relevant State, federal, and local agencies and appropriate bodies in other states of the status of any pending or completed disciplinary case against an applicant or licensee, provided that the Board has taken disciplinary action against that person or the Board had made a finding after opportunity for hearing that there is probable cause to believe that disciplinary action is warranted; and

    (6) require restitution of fees received from a complainant.

    (c) The Board shall investigate all complaints and charges of unprofessional conduct against any licensee. The Board shall not discontinue a pending investigation or disciplinary case by reason of the absence of the applicant or licensee from the State. (Added 1981, No. 241 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
