Do I Have to Hire an ASL Interpreter?

  • March 12, 2014

This is one of the more common questions I’m asked as an agency owner. It’s nice that people trust me to answer honestly, and the answer is usually yes, but this information needs to be shared more broadly. I’m not a lawyer, but I do have a pretty good handle on how the ADA applies to sign language interpreting services. This open-captioned video also clears up some related questions, like how interpreting services are actually funded. This is a great video to share with colleagues; once you get it figured out you can help other offices who may encounter the same situation.

If you’re looking for reasons to not hire an interpreter or for loopholes in the ADA, call your attorney for help with that.
