Most businesses are regulated by various government agencies or entities. Some business types are more regulated than others. Depending to entity or agency regulating your business, your business may experience some form of regulatory action alleging a violation of local, state or federal law. On the local level, a city or district attorney may be involved. On a state level, it may be the California Attorney General. Alternatively businesses may experience regulatory action by one of many California regulating departments and divisions such as California Department of Business Oversight or California Department of Consumer Affairs. On the federal level, there’s also a vast number of regulating bodies. For example, the greatest concern for the financial industry is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which has rulemaking authority over the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and numerous other consumer protection laws. The CFPB also takes enforcement action against accounts receivable management businesses. This may start with an investigation and lead to prosecution.
