The Division investigates matters pertaining to business licenses, endorsements, and licensed professionals. Please be aware that not all issues will fall within our jurisdiction and you may have to contact other agencies for assistance. We encourage you to call our office prior to submitting a complaint to ensure that we are able to assist you. Check our Complaint FAQ for advice and answers to many questions about filing a complaint.

Businesses and Endorsements

If a business is operating without a business license, improperly licensed, or without the required endorsement, we may be able to assist you. To see if a business has a license and/or an endorsement, check our business license search.


If you would like to file a complaint against a licensed or unlicensed professional, please check the list of regulated professions to ensure the complaint falls within our jurisdiction.

To see if someone is professionally licensed or if an existing licensee has disciplinary action, you can use the professional license search. Disciplinary actions will be notated in the license detail.
