An adjudication tribunal of the Newfoundland and Labrador College of Social Workers has found a local social worker guilty of conduct deserving of sanction.

Specifically, Kirk Quilty was found guilty of not exercising due diligence and failing in his duty of care by not following best practices, including not completing a thorough assessment, and not consulting with his supervisor to ensure a child’s safety and well-being.

As a result, the tribunal summary says a child was left at risk of potential harm.

The incident occurred between April and May of 2021 when Quilty practiced social work in the St. John’s area.

The tribunal heard and accepted a joint submission on sanction, and ordered a reprimand for 12 months, a 15 day suspension of his registration to practice, and the completion of an education course focused on the ethics of risk management, among other requirements.
