- Ask for an interpreter or to speak to a bilingual staff member
- Talk to a supervisor, customer services person, or ombudsman (person who hears complaints)
- File a complaint; most agencies have their own complaint form you can ask for over the phone, in-person, online, or by mail. Be sure to:
- Submit the complaint in writing (in English or your first language)
- Sign and date the complaint
- Keep a copy for your records
Contact Legal Aid. In some cases, Legal Aid may be able to help you when an agency has refused to use an interpreter to talk with you.
