Disciplinary Actions

    Disciplinary Actions 

    Where feasible, disciplinary articles are periodically removed from this site in accordance with the following guidelines:

    • Terminations generally remain on the Web site for a maximum of seven years. If the member has his/her membership reinstated, their article will remain for a minimum of five years or the date of reinstatement, whichever is longer.
       
    • Suspensions will generally be removed from the Web site one year after the member’s suspension period has ended. Suspensions coincident with the state boards of accountancy will generally be removed when the member has sent notification that their suspension has been lifted by the state board. However, all suspensions will remain on the Web site for a minimum of one year.
       
    • Admonishments will generally be removed from the Web site one year after the effective date of admonishment. 

    Help Protect the Public Interest

    Members who notice, suspect or are aware of significant deficiencies in the work of another member should seriously consider referring the matter to the Professional Ethics Division. Prior to referral, consider your responsibilities under Rule 301 of the Code of Professional Conduct if the member is affiliated with a client (e.g., CFO of an audit client). If you are unsure of the applicability of Rule 301, call the Ethics Hotline at 888.777.7077.

    Disciplinary actions are updated quarterly.


    *Articles have been removed according to the retention schedule.
