ASL-English Interpreter Handbook

Payroll / Billing

All interpreting work is hourly and subject to student enrollment, budget cuts, and/or at the discretion of the Accessibility Resource Center. ASL interpreters are non-academic/non-classified employees (NANCE), and must have Personnel Action Forms (PAF's) renewed once an academic year. Renewal of rehire forms is at the discretion and invitation of the A.R.C. NANCE's may not work over 8 hours in a day or 25 hours in a week.

  • Billable Time Only: Interpreters are paid hourly for working in assigned classes or events only. There are no night time or weekend pay differentials. If you arrive late to an assignment, this should be reflected in Workday. Please submit your hours into Workday on the last day of your shift weekly. 
  • Paid Holidays or Sick Time: NANCE's are not paid for holidays or when campus is closed. Interpreters can accrue sick time under the Heathly Workplace Healthy Family Act of 2014 Paid Sick Leave (AB1522). Please check in Workday for an up-to-date record of accrued sick time.
  • Field Trips: All field trips or outside classroom events must be approved for interpreting services. DHH students are responsible to submit an interpreting request at least two weeks in advance. Interpreters must have direct authorization from the Interpreter Coordinator before working a field trip or outside class event.
  • Work Authorization - Only interpreting assignments authorized by the Interpreter Coordinator will be paid. 
  • Two-Hour Minimum: Intepreters who work one assignment in a day and have no other assignments, may bill a two-hour minimum even if the assignment runs less than an hour.
  • Four Hour Gap: Interpreters who work one assignment in a day and then must return to campus after four hours for another assignment, will be paid a two-hour minimum for the first assignment.
  • Paychecks: Paychecks can be picked up at the Business Communications Office located at Building 10 after 11:30 a.m. on the last day of the month. Direct deposit can be set up in Workday. 
  • Pay Day on a Holiday/Weekend: If pay day occurs on a weekend or a holiday, checks will be available the business day before. Please contact the Business Communications Office at: (619) 644-7621 for any possible changes.
  • New Fiscal Year: Every July 1st all NANCE's must submit a new PAF for the new academic year. Employment is at the discretion and invitation of the A.R.C. Interpreter Coordinator. PAF's must be be submitted as an original document. No scanned documents accepted.
Interpreters may NOT begin working until the PAF form has been authorized. The Interpreter Coordinator will send an e-mail confirmation of employment for the new academic year.
