Rule No. 69B-235.00
Rule Title Sale of Certificates of Deposit
Date November 25, 2014
Time 10:00 a.m.
Place Rm 142, Larson Building, 200 East Gaines Street,
Tallahassee, Florida
Type Hearing
Summary of Rule The reason that necessitates the proposed action is that modification is to delete the illegal standard to determine the Department’s duties related to refusal, suspension, or revocation of agent’s license in conjunction with the sale of Certificates of Deposit if an agent has been a source of loss to the public, pursuant to Section 626.621(6), F.S. The words “detrimental to public interest” as used in section 626.621, F.S., were found to be unconstitutionally vague in Whitaker v. Department of Insurance and Treasurer, 680 So.2d 528 (Fla. 1st DCA 1996). The proposed amendments will update the rule to remove the illegal standard.

Also, the timeframe for the employer to provide additional records is revised to twenty business days after the service of the first amended order of penalty assessment. The amendment to Rule 69L-6.035 also changes the factor to calculate employee payroll from 1.5 to 2 times state average weekly wage, to conform to section 440.107, Florida Statutes as it now reads.
