RULE §781.409Finding of Non-fitness

(a) The board may deny a license, license renewal, or specialty recognition if it substantiates that the applicant lacks the necessary skills and abilities to provide adequate social work services; has misrepresented any materials in the licensure application or renewal application, or any materials submitted to the board; has violated any provision of the Act in effect when the applicant applied; or has violated the Code of Conduct, Standards of Practice, or any other section of this chapter which would have applied had the applicant been licensed when he/she committed the violation.

(b) The board may require an applicant for licensure or licensure renewal to obtain a criminal background check from a board-designated agency and to provide the board an official copy of that report. The board may consider the report in determining the applicant's eligibility for licensure or renewal. Failure to obtain the background check within 30 days of the board's request is grounds for denying the application.
