New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:11-26 - Violation; Penalty

30:11-26. Violation; penalty
Any person, firm, partnership, corporation or association who shall operate or conduct a convalescent home or private nursing home without first obtaining an administrator licensed pursuant to the provisions of this act, or who shall operate such convalescent home or private nursing home after denial, revocation or suspension of its administrator's license shall be liable to a penalty of $50.00 for each day of operation in violation hereof for the first offense, and for any subsequent offense shall be liable to a penalty of $100.00 for each day in violation hereof. Any such penalty shall be sued for and collected in a summary proceeding instituted by the Attorney General, at the request and in the name of the State Board of Control, pursuant to the Penalty Enforcement law (N.J.S. 2A:58-1, et seq.). The State Board of Control, with the approval of the Attorney General, is hereby authorized and empowered to compromise and settle claims for money penalties in appropriate circumstances where it appears to the satisfaction of the board that payment of the full penalty will work severe hardship on any individual not having sufficient financial ability to pay the full penalty, but in no case shall the penalty be compromised for a sum less than $200.00 for the first offense and $500.00 for the second and each subsequent offense; provided, however, that any penalty of less than $200.00 or $500.00 as the case may be, may be compromised for a lesser sum. Money penalties when required shall be payable to the General State Fund. No money penalties provided for herein shall be required to be paid until the appellate procedures provided for in the courts shall have been exhausted and then only if on appeal, it is determined that the licensee was in violation of the provisions hereof or the rules and regulations of the State Board of Control establishing minimum standards for license. Money penalties assessed prior to the filing of an appeal to the appellate court or courts shall be recoverable only to the extent that the appellate court or courts affirms the decision of the department in the first instance.
