§ 974.2. Appeal to Disciplinary Review Committee.
(a) In addition to requesting a hearing provided for in Section 7411 of the Business and Professions Code, the cited person may within thirty (30) days of the date the notice of violation or citation was issued, notify the Board in writing of his or her request for an informal citation review hearing before the disciplinary review committee.
(b) Upon receipt of a timely written request, the board staff shall schedule the cited person for the next hearing to be held in the general vicinity of the cited person's address of record and which is at least forty five (45) days after the board's receipt of the request for the hearing. The board staff shall, at least thirty (30) days before the date of the hearing, mail written notice to the cited person of the date, time, and location of the hearing.
(c) The cited person shall appear and may bring legal counsel or an authorized representative to the hearing and may present written information and/or oral testimony to the disciplinary review committee.
(d) The cited person may contest or appeal any of the following aspects of the citation or notice of violation:
(1) The occurrence of a violation of the Barbering and Cosmetology Act or the regulations adopted by the board;
(2) The period of time for correction, if any; and/or
(3) The amount of the fine.
(e) At the conclusion of the informal citation review hearing, the disciplinary review committee may elect to continue the hearing or to hold the record open for the cited person to present additional information to the committee. If the disciplinary review committee elects to continue the hearing, it will be continued until the next scheduled hearing to be held in the general vicinity of the cited person's address of record. Board staff shall give notice to the cited person of the date, time, and location of the continued hearing in accordance with subsection (b). If the disciplinary review committee elects to hold the record open for submission of additional written information, the cited person must provide the additional written information to the same disciplinary review committee prior to its next scheduled meeting, and the committee shall close the record and consider the matter at its next scheduled meeting.
(f) The disciplinary review committee may affirm, modify or dismiss the citation, including any fine. In no event shall the violations recorded on the citation or notice of violation or the administrative fines be increased. The disciplinary review committee may consider the history of previous violations of the same or similar nature in determining its decision in the matter. A written decision based on findings of fact shall be mailed to the cited person and his or her legal counsel, if any, within thirty (30) days from the date of the informal citation review hearing. The effective date of the decision shall be thirty (30) days after it is mailed to the cited person, and the effective date shall be written in the decision. This decision shall be deemed to be a final order with regard to the citation issued, including the fine levied.
(g) If the cited person fails to appear at the informal citation review hearing and fails to show good cause, as defined in Section 975 for the failure to appear, the administrative fine shall become final and there shall be no administrative appeal except as otherwise provided by law.
(h) If the disciplinary review committee affirms or modifies the citation or notice of violation, including any fine, the cited person may, prior to the effective date of the decision of the disciplinary review committee, request in writing a hearing before an administrative law judge pursuant to section 7411 of the Business and Professions Code. If the disciplinary review committee dismisses the citation or notice of violation in its entirety, any request for a hearing before an administrative law judge shall be deemed to be withdrawn.
