Facing stalled negotiations in Congress, President Trump issued two directives Saturday designed to provide temporary relief to workers affected by Covid-19 by extending supplemental unemployment insurance benefits and deferring payroll taxes.

The efficacy of the president’s action is uncertain. Some large states with high unemployment rates may be unable to fund the additional UI benefits, and the payroll tax deferral poses legal and practical issues that have caused some analysts to question how—and even whether—employers should comply.

ASA Staffing Index Offers Up-to-Date View of Staffing Employment

Looking for real-time data on staffing employment? The ASA Staffing Index reports weekly changes in the number of people employed in temporary and contract work. The data will help your firm evaluate its performance against a national metric on both a weekly and long-term basis.

All staffing firms with U.S. operations are invited to participate in the ASA Staffing Index survey. Every Tuesday, participants receive an email with the results of the weekly survey, including figures by company size, and access to historical data and new dynamic charts. These data, which are not available anywhere else, allow staffing firms to compare how their business is doing on a weekly basis relative to similarly sized firms in the industry. There are no fees to participate in the five-question survey.

Don’t get stuck with outdated or unreliable data—sign up to participate in the ASA Staffing Index and receive the most up-to-date information about the staffing industry. For more information about the index, visit
