487.1047 Order suspending or prohibiting person from being licensee and from being employed by, agent of, or control person of licensee.

Sec. 47.

(1) If in the opinion of the commissioner a person has engaged in fraud or has been convicted of a criminal violation involving money laundering, the commissioner may serve upon that person a written notice of intention to prohibit that person from being employed by, an agent of, or a control person of a licensee under this act, or a licensee or registrant under a financial licensing act. As used in this subsection, "fraud" includes actionable fraud, actual or constructive fraud, criminal fraud, extrinsic or intrinsic fraud, fraud in the execution, in the inducement, in fact, or in law, or any other form of fraud.

(2) A notice issued under subsection (1) shall contain a statement of the facts supporting the prohibition and, except as provided under subsection (7), set a time and date for a hearing, within 60 days after the date of the notice. If the person does not appear at the hearing, he or she consents to the issuance of an order in accordance with the notice.

(3) If, after a hearing held under subsection (2), the commissioner finds that any of the grounds specified in the notice have been established, the commissioner may issue an order of suspension or prohibition from being a licensee or registrant or from being employed by, an agent of, or a control person of any licensee under this act or a licensee or registrant under any financial licensing act.

(4) An order issued under subsection (2) or (3) is effective when served on the person subject to the order. The commissioner shall also serve a copy of the order upon the licensee of which the person is an employee, agent, or control person. The order remains in effect until it is stayed, modified, terminated, or set aside by the commissioner or a reviewing court.

(5) After 5 years from the date of an order issued under subsection (2) or (3), the person subject to the order may apply to the commissioner to terminate the order.

(6) If the commissioner considers that a person served a notice under subsection (1) poses an imminent threat of financial loss to purchasers of payment instruments from a licensee, the commissioner may serve upon the person an order of suspension from being employed by, an agent of, or a control person of any licensee. The suspension is effective on the date the order is issued and, unless stayed by a court, remains in effect pending the completion of a review as provided under this section and until the commissioner has dismissed the charges specified in the order.

(7) Unless otherwise agreed to by the commissioner and the person served with an order issued under subsection (6), the commissioner shall hold the hearing required under subsection (2) to review a suspension not earlier than 5 days or later than 20 days after the date of the notice.

(8) If a person is convicted of a felony involving fraud, dishonesty, breach of trust, or money laundering, the commissioner may issue an order suspending or prohibiting that person from being a licensee and from being employed by, an agent of, or a control person of any licensee under this act or a licensee or registrant under a financial licensing act. After 5 years from the date of the order, the person subject to the order may apply to the commissioner to terminate the order.

(9) The commissioner shall mail a copy of any notice or order issued under this section to the licensee of which the person subject to the notice or order is an employee, agent, or control person.
