Use online license verification websites

Your agency helps the public verify information about professionals and practitioners they wish to hire. What happens when your agency fails to provide accurate and current information? Unfortunately, incorrect public verification information leads the public to make misinformed choices about the people they hire. A website that contains outdated sanitation information about a restaurant fails to keep the public informed about current health hazards such as E. coli. Protect the public with online verification websites that display up-to-date information.

Consequences of inaccurate public verification information:

  • Public makes misinformed choices.
  • Public exposed to harm.
  • Process exposes agency to liability.
  • Agency faces negative press.
  • Board loses confidence in agency.
  • Staff spend time handling reports of inaccurate information.
