Salaries apply to employees; on-call medical interpreters are paid on a different basis Jun 15, 2010

Greetings.

Interesting article. That aside, one might observe that the term "salaries" refers and applies only to full-time, scale-paid employees, i.e., the medical interpreters on the "patient support staff" at Cedars-Sinai Hospital here in Los Angeles. The basis and amounts of compensation for on-call medical interpreters -- who work, in effect, as independent contractors -- are profoundly different, and that more-prevalent situation merits another study.

Hope this helps.
