(d) No licensed insurance producer shall permit or allow any unlicensed person to transact the business of an insurance producer.
(e) Officers or employees of insurers authorized to do business in this State and officers or employees of licensed insurance producers, who solicit, negotiate or sell insurance by communicating directly with the public whether in person or by mail, fax, computer or telephone, in the name of and on behalf of the insurer or the licensed insurance producer, for compensation of any type, shall be licensed as an insurance producer.
