Procedural Hurdle Delays Passage of New Jersey Staffing Legislation

On June 29, a last-minute procedural issue prevented the New Jersey legislature from passing A 1474/S 511, an onerous bill that would make it much more difficult for staffing agencies to do business in the state. Further action on the legislation is likely to take place next month.

Earlier this year, leadership of the New Jersey Staffing Alliance, an ASA-affiliated chapter—as well as ASA staff—met with the sponsors of the legislation to discuss amendments crucial to the staffing industry. After several conversations, an amended version of the bill was published. The amended bill was marginally better, but many industry suggestions were not included.

Yesterday, NJSA and ASA officials met with Sen. Cryan, primary sponsor of S 511, and urged the legislature to adopt the staffing industry’s amendments. A follow-up meeting with the senator and industry representatives will be scheduled for later this month.

The New Jersey Senate is scheduled to come back into session, and it is widely anticipated that the senate will take up A 1474/S 511 at that time. Gov. Phil Murphy has said he will issue a conditional veto of the bill, so NJSA and ASA also are working with the governor’s office. ASA will continue to keep members updated on this important situation as developments unfold.
