Hartlett passed his concussion test after a head knock last Thursday night against Hawthorn, however, he did not remain off the ground for the minimum 15-minute period to ensure the club doctor assessed the vision of the incident.
The 25-year returned to the field after just five minutes, with the Power not informing the league’s interchange official that Hartlett was undertaking a concussion test, which is required under AFL rules.
As a result the league has fined the club $20,000, with half of the fine suspended until the end of 2018.
