  • Summary: The Respondent’s work, despite including a number of errors, was not sufficiently defective to meet the threshold to be considered negligence or incompetence. However, the Respondent’s actions in failing to adhere to his contractual obligations, claiming amounts he had no right to and manipulating margins and invoices to his advantage were serious in the Board’s view. These actions verged on fraudulent behaviour and the Board considered they brought the LBP scheme into disrepute. The Respondent’s licence is suspended for six months and he is ordered to pay $2,000 in costs. The Board will further publicise this decision.
