Help Clients Understand Their Obligations With the Updated Joint Employment Tool Kit

Are your clients confused about the various laws and rules pertaining to joint employment in third-party staffing arrangements—especially in light of the U.S. Department of Labor’s recent rescission of the Trump-era joint employer legal test? To assist members in addressing client’s questions and concerns regarding joint employment, ASA has updated the ASA Joint Employment Tool Kit.

The tool kit offers a collection of resources to help staffing companies address client concerns about co-employment (the relationship between a staffing firm and its client in which each has legal rights and duties with respect to the same employees), including updated fact sheets, issue papers, and sample letters to clients that dispel myths regarding joint employment and explain how working with a staffing agency can actually protect clients from liability. It’s free to ASA members.

Welcome New ASA Members

The ASA board of directors and staff welcome the following new member, which joined during the week ending Sept. 3.

Illinois Department of Labor Updates Day and Temporary Labor Service FAQ

The Illinois Department of Labor recently updated its Day and Temporary Labor Services Act FAQ to address some questions concerning the latest set of amendments that were passed into law earlier this year.

The key areas of the proposed rules addressed by the updated FAQ include “Are temporary laborers ever entitled to the same benefits as directly hired employees, and what benefits are included?” and “How can a day or temporary labor agency ensure that clients provide the necessary information to calculate wages and benefits?”

The proposed rules require that a day or temporary laborer who, after the effective date of Aug. 4, 2023, is assigned to work for a client for more than 90 calendar days within any 12-month period, consecutively or intermittently at a work site for a third-party client employer, receive at least the same wages and benefits as an equivalent employee directly hired by the client. In an important clarification, FAQ No. 6 provides that “90 days means days the laborer actually goes to the third-party client’s work site to work,” which means not just that 90 calendar days have passed since the employee began work, but that the employee actually worked 90 days. Interested parties are invited to submit comments regarding the proposed rule to the Department of Labor no later than Oct. 2. ASA is in the process of finalizing its comment letter.
