Midyear Report: Nurse Staffing, Pay Equity, AI, Worker Classification Dominate ASA Legal and Legislative Efforts

Changes in Congress and several state legislatures made it almost impossible to predict what legislative challenges the staffing industry might face in 2023. With the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in the rearview mirror, it appeared that legislators would turn their attention to more traditional labor and employment issues, such as minimum wage increases, predictive scheduling, and pay equity.

Efforts to regulate health care staffing also continued in numerous states, occupying the majority of the association’s legislative activities. ASA also joined a lawsuit to fight back against a newly enacted “first of its kind” temporary worker pay equity law in New Jersey; some of its most troubling provisions then were adopted in Illinois. ASA further engaged on artificial intelligence measures as well as worker misclassification issues. Through it all, ASA secured major victories to ensure that its members could remain unencumbered in placing people in jobs.
