ASHA members, consumers, employers and licensing/regulatory boards will soon have 24/7 access to timely and accurate public information on ethics violations.
The online tool, scheduled to go live in May, provides information indicating a member’s or certificate-holder’s status. Users can find information immediately, rather than requesting information through the ASHA Ethics office.
The online information on members and certificate-holders found to be in violation of the Code of Ethics includes the Board of Ethics rationale for the sanction(s), the principle(s) and rule(s) violated, a link to the online ASHA Leader in which the violation was originally published (if available), and certification status. The results page allows users to print an individual’s ethics violation history and a certification verification letter.
To make sure you view information on the correct member, have the member’s full name with city and state, or the ASHA account number of the person you are searching. If you find multiple records with the same name or are unsure if you’ve found the correct record, please contact ethics@asha.org or certification@asha.org for guidance.
In addition, a change in Leader reporting of Board of Ethics decisions begins with this issue. The print Leader includes the name (with city and state) of the violator, the relevant version of the Code of Ethics, and the public sanction (with duration, if applicable) and effective date. Complete details of the decisions, including the rationales and the violated principles and rules, are included in The ASHA Leader Online.
