Business with Deaf Employees

Business and industry normally require sign language interpreters if they have current or potential deaf and hard of hearing employees.   Interpreters can be used in the following settings:

  • Job interviews
  • Job orientation
  • Business meetings and conferences
  • Job training
  • Disciplinary meeting with a supervisor

Deaf and Hard of Hearing employees do not need interpreters for day-to-day work after initial job training.   Instead, an interpreter is hired when there will be complex communication or when multiple people will be involved in an activity.

Employers are required to provide interpreters for their employees if they need an interpreter for effective communication.  You may learn more about the ADA Law by reading the links below:
