Social worker struck off for accepting job while suspended

The General Social Care Council has removed a social worker from its register after hearing she had accepted employment at a council, despite being suspended.

American Catherine Easter breached the terms of a work permit and the GSCC’s code of conduct by accepting employment at York Council while suspended from her post at Wakefield Council.

Easter also failed to inform the GSCC of the suspension and later said she had resigned after the council dismissed her for gross misconduct.
