What discipline can be expected if a termination has been reported to a BON and the employer does not submit documents or witness to support falsification of work record?

We do not give legal advice here....I suggest you contact a lawyer and you malpractice carrier to discuss this matter. The BON decides what punishment/penalities will be by your history with them and the seriousness of the offense.

I wish you luck.

Already have legal advice, just trying to find common ground or knowledge base with anyone out there who may have experienced something similar.

BONs scope of authority is related to clinical practice only. If the "work record" issue has nothing to do with clinical/patient care, they may not be interested.

Thanks! I appreciate your reinforcement of what I think I probably already knew, but just need to hear it from the objective perspective. MUCH APPRECIATED!
