The ASA Certified Staffing Professional® and Technical Services CertifiedSM programs now include critical content related to the Affordable Care Act. The ACA imposes major new legal obligations on employers, including additional excise taxes, which will increase the cost of supplying temporary and contract workers. Under the ACA employer mandate that takes effect Jan. 1, 2015, and using a one-year “look back” period, staffing firms must start tracking full-time and “variable hour” employees starting Jan. 1, 2014.
Questions about this and other important aspects of the ACA will be included in the CSP® and TSCSM exams starting in September. The ASA certification study materials, which are provided when you order a certification package, now include information to help you prepare for these exam questions.
