Las leyes federales de derechos civiles tienen un gran alcance

The requirements and rules may affect your organization in unexpected ways.  

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act (1964), for example, prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin and includes affirmative legal requirements for providing effective, quality language assistance to people who do not speak or read English.  

Más recientemente, la Sección 1557 de la Ley de Atención Asequible estipula una serie de nuevas leyes federales de derechos civiles para la atención médica. Las regulaciones de la sección 1557, que se convirtió en ley federal en la primavera de 2016, incluyen requisitos para comunicarse con personas con capacidad limitada de inglés (LEP, por sus siglas en inglés) y pacientes sordos y con problemas de audición. 

Developing Language Access Plans for Diverse Organizations

In today’s multicultural society, ensuring language accessibility is paramount for all organizations, be it government entities, healthcare institutions, or non-profits. A comprehensive Language Access Plan (LAP) is essential to bridge the communication gap and ensure that everyone, regardless of their linguistic background, has equal access to services and information. 

Government Organizations: For government bodies, an effective LAP is not just about compliance; it’s about serving every citizen equally. Whether it’s a local municipality or a federal agency, government organizations have the responsibility to communicate effectively with all their constituents. This includes providing interpreters for public meetings, translating vital documents, and ensuring that online resources are available in multiple languages. 

 

Healthcare Organizations (HC): In the healthcare sector, the stakes are even higher. Miscommunication can lead to medical errors, impacting patient safety and care quality. An effective LAP ensures that patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) or those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing receive the same standard of care as English-speaking patients. This includes offering interpreting services, translating medical documents, and training staff on cultural competence. 

Non-profits: For non-profit organizations, especially those serving diverse communities, language accessibility is crucial. Whether it’s providing services, conducting outreach, or raising awareness, non-profits need to ensure that their message reaches everyone, irrespective of language barriers. An LAP can guide non-profits in offering multilingual resources, organizing community engagement events with interpreters, and ensuring that their services are inclusive and accessible to all. 

La Ley de Estadounidenses con Discapacidades (ADA, 1990)

The ADA requires state and local government offices and other businesses of various industries to accommodate people with physical disabilities.  The ADA also requires that government and businesses provide language-based accommodations for people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, blind, or low vision. 

¿De qué manera estas normas y reglamentos pueden afectarlo a usted?

In practical terms, non-compliance with these federal laws could put you and your organization at risk of a costly discrimination lawsuit or a rigorous federal investigation. This risk arises if you’re unaware of your legal obligations, such as providing necessary accommodations for individuals with Limited English Proficiency or those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing when they access your services. The stakes are particularly high for medical professionals. Notably, malpractice insurance typically doesn’t cover the financial penalties imposed by courts for civil rights violations, leaving healthcare professionals vulnerable to substantial out-of-pocket expenses.
