REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST DEFENCE LAWYERS

Registered Massage Therapist Lawyers – Representing RMT’s in cases involving complaints and investigations by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario

Registered Massage Therapists (“RMTs”) are often the subject of a variety of types of complaints and reports. If you receive a notification that you are the subject of a complaint or report to your College, it can be stressful.

When you are the subject of a complaint, the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (“the CMTO”) will notify you of the complaint and will give you an opportunity to respond. At Damien Frost & Associates LLP, we provide that response on behalf of our clients in order to protect their rights and interests.

You may or may not be aware if you are the subject of a CMTO or insurance company investigation, as investigators are often undercover. If you believe that you may be the subject of an investigation by the CMTO or by an insurance company, you should contact a lawyer immediately. Experienced counsel will be able to advise you of your rights and obligations, and offer guidance in dealing with the College or an insurance company.

RMTs are often the subjects of reports, complaints and investigations for improper billing, alleged inappropriate touching or comments, as well as insufficient record-keeping. Our firm has defended RMTs against a wide array of complaints, reports and investigations.

College of Massage Therapists of Ontario Complaints Lawyers

If you have a matter that is before a panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“the ICRC”) do not wait until a decision has been made to get legal assistance. A decision made by the ICRC can be  made public on your CMTO profile and can impact your professional reputation and livelihood. The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP can assist in responding to complaints with written submissions to the ICRC. You should not respond to the ICRC in writing yourself, as anything you provide to the College can be used against you in a future proceeding or at a Discipline Hearing.

If you have received a Notice of Hearing, your matter has been referred to the Discipline Committee.. You should contact a lawyer immediately, as a discipline hearing is just like a trial and your professional standing may be at risk. The Discipline Committee of the CMTO 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

These are serious outcomes for any professional. It can devastate your career or result in further action being taken against you. If you have received a complaint, believe that you are under investigation, or have received a Notice of Hearing, click here to contact our office to arrange a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.

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.
