ACE Reporting US - Government Contractor Position, Pay and Process

The job duty of our reporters is to digitally record the proceedings and take log notes of each hearing. No transcription is required to be done. Each hearing lasts approximately 60 minutes, and if the hearings get done earlier, the reporter is free to leave.

There will be, on average, 5 hearings per day/3-5 days per week.

If hearings fall out, get continued, canceled, or postponed, if it is within 24 hours, the reporter is compensated a cancellation fee of $5/hearing. We will be paying our reporters $20 for all completed hearings depending on the wage determination from the Department of Labor for each specific state.

Government Contractor Background Check and Clearance

Each of our Hearing Reporters is required to complete a background check, including fingerprints for a suitability determination by the Social Security Administration (SSA.) Once this process is complete, the reporter will be issued a PIV Government clearance card.

This background check process can take 30-45 days. Those with current or previous military or government clearances can finish the process in as little as 2 weeks.

The Government provides the computer and technicians on site in case there are any issues. It is a regular courtroom setting with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) presiding. Our reporters are not responsible for handling or marking exhibits.

Our Reporter’s only job is to show up at the venue, log into the computer with their PIV cards (clearance cards), and monitor the recording of the hearings, along with taking the required notes on the computer.

Training is completed on-site by each individual office, and each reporter will be required to sign documents of security awareness and confidentiality. This is necessary since our reporters will have access to private personal information including social security numbers.

ACE currently maintains 30 Government contracts across 15 states, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
