Subdivision 1.License issuance, revocation, and suspension.

The department shall issue a license as an employment agent, employment agency manager or counselor to any person who qualifies for such license under the terms of sections 184.21 to 184.40. The department may refuse to issue an employment agency license whenever, after due investigation, the department finds that the character of the applicant makes the applicant unfit to be an employment agent, or when the premises for conducting the business of an employment agent is found upon investigation to be unfit for such use. No agency license shall be issued to any person, firm, corporation or association that has, within the past three years, been convicted in any court of fraud or felony. No license shall be issued to any attorney whose license to practice law has been suspended or revoked, for a period of three years after the date of such suspension or revocation. The department may refuse to issue a license to any person or may suspend or revoke the license of any employment agent, employment agency manager or counselor when it finds that any of the following conditions exist:

(1) that the employment agent or counselor has violated any condition of the bond required by sections 184.21 to 184.40;

(2) that the person, employment agent or counselor has personally engaged in a fraudulent, deceptive, or dishonest practice;

(3) that the person, employment agent or counselor has violated any provisions of sections 184.21 to 184.40;

(4) that the person, employment agent or counselor has been legally adjudicated incompetent and has not been restored to capacity.

Subd. 2.Application of other laws.

This section shall not be construed to relieve any person from civil liability or from criminal prosecution under sections 184.21 to 184.40 or under the laws of this state. A violation of this section shall be treated as a violation of section 325F.69.
