Am I an employee? Do I qualify for workers' comp?
Updated On: Jan 09, 2023

Many workers that should be employees are misclassified as independent contractors and led to believe that they have fewer rights than they really do. CHAPTER 8 of the Washington State Workers' Rights Manual, prepared by South Seattle Community College, provides some information on how to figure out if you are an employee or not, and if you aren’t, what rights you may have.

In January 2020, the Department of Labor and Industries published its workers’ compensation exemption criteria for interpreters. Under these critieria, some interpreters may qualify for workers' compensation benefits. On December 1, 2022, the state's vendor Universal Language Services sent an email to interpreters anouncing deductions for workers' compensation benefits.
