OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST DEFENCE LAWYERS FOR ONTARIO 

Occupational Therapist Complaint Lawyers for Ontario

If you are the subject of a complaint or report to the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario, or if you are being investigated, an experienced lawyer can assist you in understanding your rights and provide comprehensive submissions to the College.

Complaints to the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario

If you are the subject of a complaint, you will receive a copy of it from the College  and have the opportunity to respond. Your response, along with the complaint, will be provided to the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“the ICRC”) of the College of Occupational Therapists. The ICRC has the power to issue a caution, order you to take a remedial program or refer your matter to the Discipline Committee for a hearing. You should seek immediate legal assistance to respond to any complaint or report made to the College. If you respond yourself, what you say could be used against you by the College.

Investigations by the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario

As a result of a complaint or report to the College of Occupational Therapists, you may be investigated by the College. If you receive notice that you are being investigated, you should contact a lawyer immediately. Experienced counsel will be able to guide you through the investigation process so that you are aware of your rights and obligations. You have the right to receive the Report of Investigation and provide a response which will be considered by the ICRC. A lawyer should provide this response on your behalf in order to protect your rights..

The Discipline Committee of the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario

If you have been notified that you are being referred to the Discipline Committee of the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario, you should retain legal counsel. A Discipline Hearing is just like a trial and your professional standing is on the line. The Discipline Committee of the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario has the power to:

  • revoke your certificate of registration;
  • suspend your certificate of registration;
  • impose terms, conditions and limitations on your certificate of registration for a specific or indefinite period of time;
  • require you to appear for a reprimand;
  • require you to pay a fine of up to $35,000; and
  • require you to pay the costs and expenses of the investigation and the legal costs and expenses of the hearing

It is because of these broad powers of the Discipline Committee that you should have experienced legal counsel. The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP will guide you through the process, communicate with the College on your behalf, and ensure the best chances of success, with no surprises along the way

Very Pleased Working with Rebecca

"I have been very pleased working with Rebecca. She worked very efficiently, professionally and cared for every step, as we went through the process with Ontario College of Pharmacists. Initially I thought I would be going through a nightmare ,when I received my paperwork from Ontario College of Pharmacists, but Rebecca made the process seamless and the outcome was positive. Thank-you Rebecca and I would highly recommend your excellent professional service to others."

Very Professional and Helpful

I hired Ms Rebecca Young regarding a legal matter in October 2015. I found her and the firm to be very professional and helpful. The whole process took about one year to resolve. I followed her advice and the outcome was in my favour. I would recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and pleasant attitude.
