The only people who can file a complaint are those who are party to and aware of the alleged violation. The Division receives the complaint and decides if it has merit. 

If the Division finds the complaint has merit, the Division will:

  1. Direct the complain to the provider's certifying body; or
  2. Assign an investigative committee; or
  3. An investigative committee will consist of:
  • One program specialist from the Division
  • One person who is deaf or HoH, and
  • One service provider who is registered
    • Each member must sign a confidentiality agreement and not have a conflict of interest in the outcome.
    •  Utilize the services of a mediator certified by RID; or
    •  Intervene if agreed upon.

 Note: RID will not accept complaints from the Division.Their policy requires that complaints come only from consumers.  Consumers can direct their complaints to RID’s Ethical Practices System if they know the interpreter is certified by RID.
