    Talk to a License Defense Lawyer you can trust.

    Social workers in Texas devote their lives to working tirelessly for many of society’s most overlooked citizens. You probably entered this profession because you care strongly about helping people in need and providing them with the resources they need to live their lives. You know what an important role you serve every day. Many people truly rely on you for some of the most basic needs. Texas is a better place thanks to your hard work.

    That’s why you’re probably surprised when someone files a complaint against you, claiming you didn’t do your job right. Such complaints need to take seriously right from the start. Even if you think there’s no basis for such a complaint, you need to do everything you can to make sure the complaint is dismissed. Otherwise, your license – and your livelihood – could be in jeopardy.

    The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) regulates the profession of social work in Texas. The agency investigates complaints, sometimes informally by the staff. In other cases, the Texas Department of State Health Services investigates. If you are the subject of a complaint, you will be notified by the board and given an opportunity to respond. The Commission then investigates the complaint. Upon completion, a report is given to the Ethics Committee, which determined whether a violation has been proven. The outcome may be a letter of reprimand or the denial, suspension, probation or revocation of your license.

    You have a right to bring your case before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). At such a hearing, you can present evidence, call witnesses and cross-examine witnesses.
