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.

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 9 of the Washington State Workers' Rights Manual, prepared by the 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 still have. It also includes information on the rights of household workers, day laborers and under the table workers.
