§ 930-X-1-.24. Licensees Whose Licenses Have Been Suspended Or Revoked
(1) Orders imposing suspension or license revocation shall be effective forty-two days after entry unless a different period is specified in the order of suspension or license revocation. The licensee, whose license has been revoked after entry of the license revocation or suspension order, shall not accept any new client or work as a veterinarian in any capacity. However, during the period from the entry date of the order and its effective date, he or she may wind up and finish, on behalf of any client, all matters which were pending on the entry date.
(2) Within fourteen days after the effective date of the license revocation or suspension order, the licensee, whose license has been suspended or revoked shall file with the Board an affidavit showing that he or she has fully complied with the provisions of the order and with these rules to which he or she is admitted to practice. Such affidavit shall also set forth the residence or other address of the licensee whose license has been revoked or suspended where communications may thereafter be directed to him or her.
(3) The Board shall cause a notice of the revocation or suspension to be published in the official state veterinary publication and in a newspaper of general circulation in each county of the State of Alabama in which the disciplined veterinarian maintained an office for the practice of veterinary medicine or the disciplined veterinary technician or euthanasia technician was employed.
(4) A licensee whose license has been suspended or revoked shall keep and maintain records of the various steps taken by him or her under these rules so that, upon any later proceeding instituted by or against him or her, proof of compliance with these Rules and with the revocation or suspension order will be available. Proof of compliance with these rules shall be a condition precedent to the filing or consideration of any petition for reinstatement.
(5) The perfection of an appeal shall operate as a stay of any discipline, sanction, duty, requirement or other act imposed or required by these rules, and such stay shall continue until the appeal is finally determined; provided, however, the Board may, for good cause shown, petition the court to terminate the stay before the final determination of the appeal.(Repealed and New Rule: Filed December 18, 1997; effective January 22, 1998. Amended: Filed January 10, 2007; effective February 14, 2007.)
