Thirty-seven licensed professionals in Utah were disciplined in June.

Records from the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing reveal that contractors were the most-sanctioned professional group during June hearings before licensing boards.

Of the 16 contractors disciplined, 13 had their licenses revoked, while the others were placed on probation.

Among their offenses were failure to comply with probationary requirements, failure to demonstrate financial responsibility and failure to replace departing employees with those adequately qualified to perform licensed work.

One company, Kearns-based High Desert Heating & Cooling, had its license revoked for misrepresentations on its license renewal application, along with failure to maintain financial responsibility. The state found the company had not satisfied all judgements, tax liens, child support and other financial claims against it, although the company said it had. In addition to losing its license, High Desert was also ordered to pay a $500 fine.

Apprentice electricians were targeted with seven disciplinary actions in June. Of those, only one had his license revoked, for failing to comply with probationary terms.

The rest were placed on probation, either for engaging in unprofessional conduct before applying for a license or failing to meet probationary terms.

Also in June, DOPL leveled sanctions against one provider of continuing education in the construction field; a licensed practical nurse; a certified substance-use disorder counselor and a veterinarian, records show.

The data were compiled by UtahsRight.com for a weekly series in The Salt Lake Tribune highlighting information gleaned from public databases.

UtahsRight.com, the data website for The Salt Lake Tribune, conducts an ongoing statewide quest for district court information and other public information, including salaries of public employees and restaurant inspections, using public records requests made under the state's Government Records Access and Management Act, commonly known as GRAMA.
