Nocenti: Recently, I was speaking with a colleague who runs a local nonprofit who told me about a crime that she unwittingly was planning to commit. Namely, she was thinking of hiring a licensed social worker to work with at-risk youth.

When social work is a felony 

This is insane.  I have been in the social work field since 2005 and an LMSW in NY since 2008 and I never knew about this.  The author of this article states that it is illegal for a non profit in NY to hire a licensed social worker without first obtaining a waiver. 

I wonder how many non profits are aware of this because it never came up in my classes or in any other professional forum.

Does anyone have further info about this?
