Are there penalties for violating license law?

The Minnesota Residential Contractor FAQ’s webpage states - A person whose company is required to be licensed and who performs unlicensed work as a residential building contractor or remodeler is guilty of a misdemeanor. In addition, an unlicensed person who knowingly violates the law has no right to claim a lien and the lien is void. Individuals engaging in unlicensed activity, misrepresentation or fraud are subject to administrative and civil penalties.

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry provides documentation of Residential Building Contractor Enforcement Actions. There are more than 30 pages of contractor consent orders and other enforcement actions dated January 1- through December 21, 2018. Many of which were cited for working without a license and fined thousands of dollars.
