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, now including Staffing Starts (new assignments). 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Don’t get stuck with outdated or unreliable data—sign up to participate in the ASA Staffing Index and receive the most up-to-date information about the staffing industry.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

Covid-19 Relief Law Could Mean Higher ACA Costs for Some Staffing Agencies

The recently enacted $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan Act” expanded the availability of premium tax subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. ASA has published an issue paper explaining how the expansion, and other ARPA provisions, could affect penalties on staffing agencies that do not offer health plans that provide affordable “minimum value” coverage as defined in the ACA. The paper, available to ASA members, discusses the factors staffing agencies should consider in evaluating the health coverage they offer to their temporary and contract employees.

ASA corporate partner Essential StaffCARE will host a free webinar on the topic, “Expanded ACA Premium Subsidies May Alter Staffing Firm ‘Pay or Play’ Strategies,” Tuesday, April 13, 2–3 p.m. Eastern time. Get more information and register online.

Additionally, in a session at the 2021 ASA Staffing Law Virtual Conference, employment law experts will address staffing firm concerns in the session “The ‘American Rescue Plan’—What Does It Mean for Employers?” (Sponsored by Essential StaffCARE) The Staffing Law Virtual Conference takes place April 29–30.
