Employment Termination Details 

On October 1, 2021, LPL Financial fired Janell Israel after she allegedly failed to notify the firm about her role as a customer’s power of attorney and trustee. A power of attorney is a legal authorization that can give the designated person broad authority over another individual’s property decisions. FINRA Rule 3241 states that brokers must decline a power of attorney role for their customer unless the customer is a member of their immediate family or unless they have written authorization from their member firm.  

LPL Financial further alleged that Janell Israel also provided loans to the said customer as well as family members without prior notice to the firm. FINRA Rule 3240 forbids brokers from lending money to their investors unless the investor follows the procedures put in place by their member firm. The rule also states that the broker can only lend money to their investor if the broker and the customer have a personal relationship outside of their professional association.
