Jan Haynes Suspended by FINRA for Allegedly Failing to Respond to Requests for Information
Jan Haynes (CRD #: 833875), a broker formerly registered with Integrity Brokerage Services, was recently suspended for allegedly failing to respond to FINRA requests for information, according to his BrokerCheck Record accessed on November 29, 2021. Jan Haynes’ alleged conduct is a violation of FINRA Rule 8210.
FINRA Rule 8210 requires members to provide information under oath, if requested, regarding any matter that pertains to an investigation, complaint, examination, or proceeding. A violation of FINRA Rule 8210 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 9552 and in accordance with FINRA’s Notice of Suspension letter dated October 19, 2021, Jan Haynes was suspended on November 12, 2021, from associating with any FINRA member firm in all capacities.
FINRA Rule 9552 applies in situations where a brokerage firm or representative has failed to provide information or keep information current. FINRA Rule 9552 is a Notice of Suspension if corrective action is not taken. This means if Jan Haynes fails to request termination of the suspension within three months of the date of the Notice of Suspension, he will automatically be barred on January 24, 2021, from association with any FINRA member in all capacities pursuant to FINRA Rule 9552(h).
