On one particular Sunday, it was my day off, the other esthetician worked on that Sunday. She did some waxing and did not clean up afterward. On the following Monday's morning, the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology had a surprised inspection and I was cited for the mess that other esthetician created. What I can do if the other esthetician denied responsibility? Can I protest the citation? Can I take the other esthetician to small claim? Can I take the owner to court since I told her that it had happened many times in the past?
You can contest the citation and you should. Your clean record with the Board is an asset. If your license activity record is clouded with citations for the misconduct of others, you are putting yourself in a bad position in the event of a future complaint or allegation. It's not the fine that is so critical, although that matters, too, of course. But having a disciplinary record can have large repercussions for your license down the road.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
