While the vast majority of Minnesota Social Workers are competent and caring individuals who provide care according to the standard, violations of the Social Work practice act do happen. The Minnesota Board of Social Work, through its statutory authority specified in the Social Work Act, is responsible for reviewing and acting on complaints in order to fulfill their mission to protect the public. If the after a thorough investigation, the Minnesota Board of Social Work determines there is sufficient basis that the Social Worker violated the act or regulations, the Minnesota Board of Social Work may take disciplinary action on the Social Worker’s license. Currently, the annual rate of discipline on a Social Worker license is less than one percent.
