Resources on Diverse-Owned Businesses Available for ASA Members

Staffing companies—particularly small businesses and minority-, veteran-, LGBT-, and woman-owned businesses—find they may be able to partner with larger companies that have supplier diversity initiatives in place.

The ASA inclusion, diversity, and equity advocacy (IDEA) group has developed guidance for ASA members interested in partnering with those companies or in becoming a diverse-owned certified business. The ASA IDEA group is sponsored by ASA corporate partners ClearlyRated and Monster along with supporting sponsor WorkN.

Chicago City Council Set to Delay Implementation of New Paid Leave Law

Almost a month after a new paid leave ordinance was approved by the Chicago City Council, a series of amendments was approved by the city council’s workforce development committee. Among the proposed changes is a six-month delay in implementation.

The ordinance, which requires all employers to provide at least 10 days of paid leave to all workers, was vigorously opposed by the business community and currently is scheduled to go into effect Dec. 31. The package of amendments, including the implementation delay, is an effort to give businesses—especially small businesses—more time to understand the new ordinance so they can comply.

The full City Council is likely to vote on the proposed changes next week. If enacted, the amended ordinance would become effective July 1, 2024.
