Board: Iowa social worker was drunk on the job

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — State regulators have suspended the license of a Coralville social worker accused of being drunk on the job.

The Iowa Board of Social Work announced Tuesday that Brian Nedoba’s license has been indefinitely suspended.

Nedoba is accused of drinking alcohol and being intoxicated while providing services at a Waterloo business e in September 2011. Witnesses including co-workers said Nedoba had alcohol containers in his office and made inappropriate comments to clients.

Nedoba was terminated in January 2012.

The board met in May to discuss six counts, including habitual intoxication and inability to practice with reasonable skill and safety. The board determined Nedoba’s alcohol abuse may adversely impact his practice of social work.

There was no public number listed for Nedoba.
