Able Translations has Absolutely no respect for their interpreters/translators and steal from them. Mississauga Ontario
I just started working for Able Translations after a 5 years absense due to a serious car accident. I started taking assignments in September 2014. Before my car accident, I never experienced any real delays with payment. Unfortunately, this was not the case this time. I have not received any payments for any assignments since Sep 2014 (approx 20 assignments). This totals about over $1500. I have sent emails, I have called, left messages and spoke to Nicole Cunningham but to no avail because I receive no emails, calls or money. I finally spoke with Nicole Cunningham the beginning of March and demanded payment but she said that only Anabela Cintra could issue a cheque. She told me that she was on vacation until the end of the month (must be nice a month vacation with the money she steal from us). She told me that she would call me on her return. I waited but no call ever came. It was now over a month and I attempted to call again. Once again, the runaround ensued. This time the reps said there was no one available to speak with and I could only send an email. They insisted that they could not transfer the call.
After several attempts, I managed to find Anabela Cintra's direct line. I called and to my surprise and hers she answered the phone. I asked her about getting a cheque for all my assigments since Sep 2014 but she plays dumb and says that she has nothing to do with payments or signing cheques. She denies any responsibility and says to send an email. I know for a fact that she signs the cheques because I saw her name on cheques previously. Again, I achieved nothing and received no money. Isn't it nice that she went on a month long vacation with the interpreter's money.
What makes this situation worse is that I stopped working because I had a serious car accident almost 5 years ago and it left me with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, depression and severe debt. I was working as much as I could handle, many times more than my body could handle in order to pay my debts. Now, I have additional gas and parking expenses and as well, NO PAY for all my hard work.
How can this company get away with not paying their interpreters for over a year? Why does no one do anything? Can the Ministry of Labour not help us? Maybe a TV news station can help us. Can anyone help us get paid? Maybe a class-action lawsuit? Why are interpreters still working for them?
I'm at my wits end and really need that money.
