On February 3, 2012, the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners denied the licensed master social worker application of Marilyn Foster, based on unprofessional conduct.

According to the Board’s disciplinary report, Foster refused to attend a mandatory meeting called by her employer regarding complaints filed against her, and job and supervisory performance matters.

The Board’s reports states that over a five-year period, the employer noted that improvement was needed regarding the timeliness in corrective actions for employees under her supervision and that she failed to meet required productivity goals and that there was an ongoing struggle to be accepted by her supervisees.

She also had received three disciplinary reports due to her and her team’s delays in submitted mental status reports and that the Board had received several complaints from staff members stating that she’d engaged in inappropriate communications of a sexual/derogatory nature towards employees.

Foster was terminated for inappropriate behavior, lack of team leadership and management and not following a directive from her supervisor.
