§ 22. Returned checks; penalties. Any person who delivers a check or other payment to the Department that is returned
to the Department unpaid by the financial institution upon which it is drawn shall
pay to the Department, in addition to the amount already owed to the Department, a
fine of $50. The fines imposed by this Section are in addition to any other discipline provided
under this Act for unlicensed practice or practice on a nonrenewed license. The Department shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines shall be paid
to the Department by certified check or money order within 30 calendar days of the
notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days from the date of the notification, the person
has failed to submit the necessary remittance, the Department shall automatically
terminate the license or deny the application, without hearing. If, after termination or denial, the person seeks a license, he or she shall apply
to the Department for restoration or issuance of the license and pay all fees and
fines due to the Department. The Department may establish a fee for the processing of an application for restoration
of a license to pay all expenses of processing this application. The Secretary may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases where
the Secretary finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
