1101.03000 – Computation of Six-Month Period
Under the Trial Court Interpreter Act, interpreters in full- or part-time positions and court interpreters pro tempore on an as needed basis without benefits are considered trial court employees. Although the Trial Court Interpreter Act contains provisions granting certain rights to non-employee independent contractors, independent contractor interpreters are not considered trial court employees, and do not have collective bargaining rights. Therefore, a labor organization lacks standing to bring charge on behalf of an independent contractor alleging violations of the Trial Court Interpreter Act.
