(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Inactive status; restoration.
(a) Any electrologist who notifies the
Department in writing on
forms prescribed by the Department may elect to place a license
on inactive status and shall, subject to rules of the Department, be
excused from payment of renewal fees until the Department is notified in
writing of the intention to restore the license.
(b) Any electrologist who has permitted a license to expire or who has a license on inactive status may have the license restored by submitting an application to the Department, filing proof acceptable to the Department of fitness to have the license restored, and paying the required fees. Proof of fitness may include sworn evidence certifying to active lawful practice in another jurisdiction. The Department shall determine, by an evaluation process established by rule, a person's fitness for restoration of a license and shall establish procedures and requirements for restoration.
(c) Any electrologist whose license expired while (i) on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States or the State Militia called into service or training, or (ii) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have the license restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if, within 2 years after honorable termination of service, training, or education, the licensee furnishes the Department with satisfactory evidence that the licensee has been so engaged and that the service, training, or education has been so terminated.
(d) An electrologist requesting restoration from inactive status shall be
required to pay the current renewal fee and shall be required to follow
procedures to restore the license as provided in this Section.
(e) An electrologist whose license is on inactive or non-renewed status shall not
practice in the State of Illinois.
A licensee who engages in practice with an inactive or non-renewed license shall be considered to be practicing without a license,
which shall be grounds for discipline under Section 75 of this Act.
