CSLB can now take administrative action against any licensed or unlicensed contractor who commits violations related to the fraudulent use of a contractor license. Business and Professions Code Section 7114 prohibits aiding or abetting an unlicensed person to evade the provisions of the licensing law. or allowing one's license to be used by an unlicensed person, or acting as agent or partner or associate, or otherwise, of an unlicensed person with the intent to evade the provisions of the licensing law and constitutes a cause for disciplinary action. A licensee who is found by the registrar to have violated the law can be ordered to pay a specified sum to an injured party, including, but not limited to, payment for any injury resulting from the acts of the unlicensed person.
