The Alabama Board of Electrical Contractors (the Board) has experienced a rise in the number of incidents where licensees are “selling” or “lending” their licenses or their licenses numbers to
non-licensed persons to allow the non-licensee to illegally pull permits and/or perform electrical contracting without a license. Not only does this harm the public who is unknowingly hiring nonlicensed persons, but it harms all law-abiding licensees in the state. To allow a non-licensee to use your license is a fraud upon the local governments that issue the permits, a fraud upon the
Board that issued the license, and a fraud upon the public who hires the non-licensee. There can be serious consequences against both the licensee and the non-licensee, including criminal
prosecution, in some cases.
