How Disciplinary Investigations Arise in Hawaii

Depending on the case, an investigator for the state of Hawaii or a federal administrative agency or a self-regulatory organization prepares and sends a notice of investigation to the professional or the professional’s practice or business.

This notice mentions that the concerned agency/organization is actively conducting an inquiry against the professional in a certain matter.

The professional may be asked to submit a copy of their records in the said matter.

The agency’s/organization’s notice may also ask the professional to submit a written and signed statement about potentially violating the laws and/or rules of their profession or industry, as applicable.

Further, the professional may be asked to provide answers to specific questions and provide copies of all communications related to the matter.

The agency/organization may ask the professional to testify under oath during an on-the-record interview.

Please note that ignoring the concerned agency’s or organization’s request for information, documents or records will attract a hefty penalty. This includes suspension from a practice or a lifetime ban.
