This is a status update on the PEAT copyright violations that FSBPT first reported on July 20, 2015.
STATUS OF SCORE RELEASE
Individuals who came forward and self-reported or fully cooperated in the investigation when contacted by FSBPT will have their scores released this week.
Individuals who have not completed the security questionnaire they received or who have provided incomplete or inaccurate information will have their scores released as soon as FSBPT completes the investigation.
This investigation remains active and additional participants are still being identified. FSBPT will continue to diligently investigate and take necessary action as quickly as possible. Next steps are identified based on the candidate’s current status:
Sanctions may include a monetary fine, an online or in-person ethics course, and a requirement to write a curative statement to assure FSBPT the individual understands what they did was wrong and will not participate in such activity in the future.
When sanctions are issued, FSBPT notifies any states where the individual is licensed or where the individual has applied for licensure, and FSBPT updates its Exam, Licensure and Disciplinary Database (ELDD) to indicate that a sanction was issued. Individuals who are sanctioned are supplied information on how to appeal at the time that their sanctions are issued.
***NOTE - Individuals who cooperate with the investigation receive a reduction in their sanctions based on the level of cooperation.***
