    Sec. 50-5. Personnel; investigators. The Secretary shall employ, pursuant to the Personnel Code, personnel, on a full-time or part-time basis, for the enforcement of this Act. Each investigator shall have a minimum of 2 years investigative experience out of the immediately preceding 5 years. No investigator may hold an active license issued pursuant to this Act, nor may an investigator have a financial interest in a business licensed under this Act. This prohibition, however, does not apply to an investigator holding stock in a business licensed under this Act, provided the investigator does not hold more than 5% of the stock in the business. Any person licensed under this Act who is employed by the Department shall surrender his or her license to the Department for the duration of that employment. The licensee shall be exempt from all renewal fees while employed. While employed by the Department, the licensee is not required to maintain the general liability insurance coverage required by this Act.
