Social Workers Fired

State officials plan to fire six social service workers in the Elizabethtown area.
The firing comes in the wake of an investigation into misconduct in Kentucky's foster care system.

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services cited poor work performance, inappropriate conduct, and falsification of records as the reasons for the action.

A grand jury cleared the workers of any criminal wrongdoing last month but expressed frustration at the state's lack of any serious disciplinary action taken against the employees.
