WAC 480-07-350

Access for limited-English speakers and hearing-impaired persons.

(1) Interpreters. The commission incorporates WAC 10-08-150 (rules of procedure governing interpreters) by reference in this rule so that limited-English-speaking and hearing-impaired persons have equal access to the administrative process and the opportunity for full and equal participation in adjudicative proceedings.
(2) Notice to limited-English-speaking parties. When the commission knows that a limited-English-speaking person is a party in an adjudicative proceeding, it will serve on that party a version of all notices concerning the hearing, including notices of hearing, continuances, and dismissals, in the primary language of the party or will include in the service of each notice a supplemental notice in the party's primary language that describes the significance of the notice and how the party may receive assistance in understanding and responding to the notice.
