Human Services - Social Worker Reclassification to Case Worker
Submitted By: Tyner Little, Commissioners Court Admin
Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the reclassification of one Social Worker position to a Case Worker position in the Department of Human Services.
BACKGROUND
The Department of Human Services has experienced some difficulty with recruitment for vacancies and retaining licensed Social Workers. The only accredited Social Work program in the area exists at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
DISCUSSION
The Department of Human Services currently has one Social Worker vacancy. This provides an opportune time to reclassify the position to lower paying position that does not specifically require a BSW degree and state licensure, but does require a degree in a behavioral or social science and two years’ experience in a related field. Also the reclassification would eliminate the car allowances for these two positions as they will not be required to do field work.
