Last week during a meeting in Washington, DC, the ASA board of directors approved a Statement of Principles regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The principles summarize the staffing industry’s position on Affordable Care Act compliance.
“The ASA Statement of Principles demonstrates the staffing industry’s firm commitment to compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its ongoing commitment to the well-being of the individuals staffing firms employ every day,” says Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “Staffing firms will work closely with clients and human resource professionals to help them understand how the health care law applies to their use of staffing services. And staffing firms will work closely with their temporary and contract employees to ensure they understand their rights, opportunities, and obligations under the ACA.”
The Statement of Principles was drafted for staffing firms to share with clients when discussing the Affordable Care Act and explaining the additional costs associated with compliance.
