ABSTRACT
The article discusses whether a social worker can operate ethically while being employed by a local authority. According to Professor Michael Preston-Shoot, a social worker can not practice ethically while working for councils. It suggests to remove social workers from the professional register because of mitigating factors including inadequate supervision, chaotic departments and lack of resources to cope with demands.
