Complaint System. If you suspect a REALTOR® has violated the Code of Ethics you can submit a written complaint for review by the Grievance Committee. If warranted, this committee will request a hearing to be held before the Professional Standards Committee, which is responsible for upholding and enforcing the Code of Ethics and the Bylaws at the local, state and national level. In addition to ethics issues, this system allows you to arbitrate commission disputes fairly and objectively.
