Sanctions-only hearings are available for respondents who take responsibility for a violation or violations, and cannot agree upon a sanction with the administrator or who prefer to have their sanction(s) determined by a board. While similar to Community Review Board (CRB) hearings, Sanctions-only Hearings may not include witnesses or a complainant. The respondent has the right to not appear before the board, however it is strongly recommended that they do appear. The respondent may bring a supporter with them to a Sanctions-only Hearing. Like CRB hearings, a decision regarding the sanction(s) will be made within five business days following a hearing, and the respondent will have an opportunity to appeal in accordance with the Appeals Policy.
