  1. Accepting a settlement in order to pay a reduced fine for a violation received during a DOH Inspection is the same as pleading guilty.
  2. Restaurant operators accepting a settlement, cannot request a hearing.
  3. Even if a settlement offer was not received by mail, you may still be able to settle without having to see a Settlement Officer, by going to any OATH office in the borough closest to you.
  4. If settlement was not made before the hearing date, you can still settle on the date of the hearing, but only in person.
  5. Settlements can be made
    • online
    • by mail – payment must be received 5 days before the hearing date
    • in person
