Why don’t you go after every unlicensed contractor?

There are many safety hazards in the underground economy, yet enforcement efforts take up considerable resources. As a result we historically pursue action through the courts where we have a solid case, a strong likelihood of conviction, and can have the greatest effect on safety.

As of April 1st 2023 we will have the ability to issue Administrative Penalties to address safety hazards identified in the underground economy. This new compliance tool will allow us to go after unlicensed contractors more efficiently and effectively.
