(225 ILCS 450/20.5)
(from Ch. 111, par. 5526)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2014)
In any disciplinary proceeding, a copy of the
Committee's report shall be served upon the respondent by the Department,
either personally or as provided in this Act for the service of the notice of
hearing. Within 20 days after such service, the respondent may present to the
Department a motion in writing for a rehearing, which motion
shall specify the
particular grounds therefor. If no motion for rehearing is filed, then upon
the expiration of the time specified for filing such a motion, or if a motion
or rehearing is denied, then upon such denial the Director may enter an order in accordance with recommendations of the Committee except as provided in Section 20.6. If the respondent shall order from the reporting
service, and pay for a transcript of the record within the time for filing a
motion for rehearing, the 20 day period within which such a motion may be filed
shall commence upon the delivery of the transcript to the respondent.
Whenever the Director is satisfied that substantial justice has not been done in the disciplinary proceeding, the Director may order a rehearing by the Committee or designated hearing officer. The Director shall provide a written explanation to the Committee of any deviation from the recommendations of the Committee and shall specify with particularity the reasons for the deviation.
Upon the suspension or revocation of a registration or license of a registrant or
licensee, the registrant or licensee shall be required
to surrender to the Department the registration or license
issued by the Department, and upon
failure or refusal so to do, the Department may seize it.
The Department may exchange information relating to proceedings
in disciplinary action against licensees or registrants with the
regulatory bodies of other
states, or with other public authorities or private organizations or with federal authorities having
regulatory interest in such matter.
