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.
