(A) If the barber board determines that any person is violating or threatening to violate any provision of this chapter or the rules adopted pursuant thereto and such violation or threatened violation is a threat to the health or safety of persons who use barber services, the board may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction in the county in which the violation or threatened violation occurred or will occur for injunctive relief and such other relief to prevent further violations. The attorney general shall, at the board's request, represent the board in any such action.
(B) If the board determines, after a hearing conducted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, that any person has violated any provision of this chapter or the rules adopted pursuant thereto, the board may, in addition to any other action it may take or any other penalty imposed pursuant to this chapter, impose one or more fines upon the person. In no event, however, shall the fines imposed under this division exceed five hundred dollars for a first offense or one thousand dollars for each subsequent offense.
(C) A person who allegedly has violated a provision of this chapter for which the board proposes to impose a fine may pay the board the amount of the fine and waive the right to an adjudicatory hearing conducted under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code and described in division (B) of this section.
