Actions Taken Against Licensed Clinical Social Workers’ Licenses

Licensed clinical social workers are one of the most popular career paths for Connecticut residents. They were 5th on the list of most popular careers that require a professional license in 2020. If you are a licensed clinical social worker, you are likely in a rewarding and exciting career. However, it is important to keep in mind that obtaining your license and keeping it are two different things. First, make sure that you renew your license when necessary. Second, make sure that you comply with the license requirements so that you do not face disciplinary action by the state. On this page, I will discuss the kind of consequences that you could face if you receive a complaint against your license.

Disciplinary Action and Consequences

Disciplinary action was taken in 2020 against some licensed clinical social workers. These penalties included:

  1. Voluntary surrender of the license.
  2. Voluntary surrender of the license.
  3. Probation for the professional license for six months and participation in a course in ethics and billing.

Keep in mind that the 2020 disciplinary action taken against licensed clinical social workers has only been updated for the first half of the year.

In 2019, the following penalties were doled out for licensed clinical social workers:

  1. Probation for the professional license for two years, a $5,000 fine, a reprimand, supervisory reports, and a course in ethics and CPT coding.
  2. Revocation of the professional license.
  3. Probation for the professional license for four years, therapy, urine tests, employer reports, meetings for a support group, and the inability to practice on their own.
  4. Probation for the professional license for two years, participation in an ethics course, a reprimand, and written reports by a supervisor.
  5. Voluntary surrender of the license.
  6. Probation for the professional license for one year, a reprimand, participation in a course on record keeping and documentation, participation in a course on ethics and mandatory reporting, a report from an employer.
  7. Participation on a course in professional boundaries, a reprimand, and probation.
  8. A suspension of the professional license.

In 2018, these were the consequences for issues with a licensed clinical social worker’s professional license:
