Complaint Form

The profession of social work encompasses a wide scope of practice that may or may not require certification or licensure by this Board. While clinical social work practice is protected and requires a license by this Board, nonclinical social work practice does not require a certificate or license.

The Social Work Certification and Licensure Board has jurisdiction over social workers who are certified or licensed by this Board and individuals who are engaged in clinical social work practice in North Carolina without a valid social work license.

Many social workers practice lawfully without being certified or licensed by this Board. Please check here to verify that the social worker is certified or licensed by this Board before initiating your complaint.
