Once received, a copy of the complaint and all related materials will be sent to the respondent, who will have 14 days to submit a reply.
MCBOR forwards a complete copy of respondents reply to the Complainant. Complainant confirms they wish to continue with their complaint.
All materials related to the complaint are forwarded to the MCBOR Grievance Committee for review. The Grievance Committee's responsibility is to review the case materials and, based on a certain set of guidelines they must follow, determine if the facts presented in the complaint warrant a hearing.
If the case is referred to hearing, a panel of Professional Standards Committee members will be appointed to hear the case.
The Ethics Complaint process may take between two and three months, allowing a reasonable time for responses, review by the Grievance Committee, scheduling of the hearing, and for adoption of the hearing panel recommendations by the Board of Directors.
