CTS Incident Reports
Updated On: Oct 11, 2014

On April 1, 2014 CTS Language Link implemented a new processes to monitor Interpreter Incident Reports. This Incident Resolution Process clearly defines the new resolution scale and the consequences of violating the DSHS Code of Professional Conduct for Spoken Language Interpreters and Translators WAC 388-03-050. This Incident Resolution Process stems from the "Complaint & Corrective Action Policies" found on pages 20-21 of the HCA-CTS contract K618/9signed in June 2012.  While this is a process that CTS will be implementing and monitoring, the Health Care Authority (HCA) and our union have been consulted and provided feedback in the creation of this new process.

Upon receiving notice of an issue, whether technical or personnel related, CTS LanguageLink will follow up with the all parties involved within 24 hours and offer resolution within 72 hours.

CTS encourages their Costumer Services Representatives and Interpreters to inform them as soon as possible of any issues they notice so that CTS may address them immediately, before they rise to the level of a customer complaint.

If it is determined that the feedback is about an interpreter and specifically violates a code of conduct tenet, CTS LanguageLink will abide by the corrective action guide outlined in its HCA contract as such:

  • Counseling or verbal warning
  • Written warning
  • Suspension of services
  • Termination

You will find out a lot more about this process and its latest updates under our "Members Only" tab.
