(210 ILCS 3/50)
    Sec. 50. Investigation of applicant or licensee; notice. The Department may on its own motion, and shall on the verified complaint in writing of any person setting forth facts which if proven would constitute grounds for the denial of an application for a license, refusal to renew a license, suspension of a license, or revocation of a license, investigate the applicant or licensee. The Department, after notice and an opportunity for a hearing, may deny an application for a licensee, revoke a license, or refuse to renew a license under Section 45 of this Act. Before denying a license application, refusing to renew a license, suspending a license, or revoking a license, the Department shall notify the applicant or licensee in writing. The notice shall specify the charges or reasons for the Department's contemplated action. If the applicant or licensee desires a hearing on the Department's contemplated action, he or she must request a hearing within 10 days after receiving the notice. A failure to request a hearing within 10 days shall constitute a waiver of the applicant's or licensee's right to a hearing.
