American Staffing Association (01/31/12) Toby Malara
Members of the New York Staffing Association—an ASA-affiliated chapter—and NYSA’s lobbyist Peter Crouse recently met with officials from the New York State Department of Labor to discuss the request that the staffing industry be exempted from the Wage Theft Prevention Act’s annual notice requirement.
Crouse has since received a letter from Carmine Ruberto, director of the division of labor standards for the state DOL, indicating that “the department will waive until March 1, 2012, the requirement for temporary help firms to give their employees the required annual notice.” Staffing industry representatives hope that state labor commissioner Colleen Gardner will make a final determination by that date on the industry’s request to exempt staffing firms from the annual notification requirement. ASA will continue to keep its members updated as events unfold.
