Kansas Professionals – How False Allegations Can Harm Both Your Reputation and Your License

A natural consequence of offering your services to clients and patients is that some clients and patients will not be satisfied with the services they have received.  It is nearly impossible to please everyone, and it is inevitable that you may receive complaints in many shapes and forms.  When such complaints are unfounded and have no basis at all, your professional reputation and license are a little more at risk.

Even though baseless complaints are likely to lead nowhere for the accuser, fellow patients and clients may spread rumors that put your reputation in a very negative light.  When you are facing allegations that have the potential to harm your reputation, and if there is never any proof that such allegations are based on fact, your reputation may recover quickly.  Rumors do cause a significant amount of stress, but they are only rumors, and rumors eventually go away when no proof exists to verify their truth.

What You Should Do if You are Facing False Allegations

If your patient or client has accused you of something you simply did not do (such as sexual harassment, for example), it is important that you keep accurate notes of every instance you come into contact with this patient or client.  You may also consider notifying both your insurance carrier and your profession’s licensing board, documenting your side of the story.  By being upfront and indicating that a particular client or patient has accused you of something, you are bringing the issue to light so that it can be resolved right away.

However, before deciding to contact your profession’s Kansas licensing board, it may be well worth your time to discuss your situation with an attorney highly familiar with professional licensing laws, and other rules and regulations governing most professions in the state of Kansas.  An attorney can help you evaluate your situation to determine what the substance of the false allegations are, how such allegations have affected your reputation, and how such allegations have the potential to harm your Kansas professional license.  Troubleshooting a situation from the forefront will reduce an enormous amount of unnecessary stress that comes along with ignoring a client or patient’s repeated false allegations.  An attorney can help you stop the continued effort by another to harm your reputation and put your professional license at risk.
