The question of past professional discipline may arise on job applications or in applications for a professional license in another state. In some states, if you have been subject to professional discipline or a crime in another state you must self-disclose this information proactively to that licensing body. Whether you have a duty to self-disclose information regarding professional discipline depends on the State(s) in which you are licensed and their particular rules. Additionally, the duty to self-disclose will depend on the circumstances of your unique matter. To ensure that you do not find yourself facing further professional discipline for an untruthful answer, you should always check with an attorney if you have a question about your duty to self-disclose.
