At the ASA Staffing Law & Compliance Conference, Learn How to Fight Unfavorable Legislation

A session at the ASA Staffing Law & Compliance Conference will help staffing firms prepare for state legislation that would uniquely affect staffing firms.

The session “A (Scary) New Frontier: Tough Legislation Trends Impacting Staffing—And How to Prevent Bad Things From Happening in Your State,” presented by Marianela Peralta, Esq., of Aerotek Inc. and Andrew Scroggins, Esq., of Seyfarth Shaw LLP with ASA vice president of government affairs Toby Malara, Esq., will address state laws aimed at the staffing industry—including mandated equal pay and benefits for temporary workers, staffing-specific registration and licensing obligations, pay transparency requirements in job ads, and more. Learn the latest in the states where you do business and compliance strategies for each. Plus, take home a “Grassroots 101” resource developed by the ASA legal team so you can be part of the solution.

The 2024 ASA Staffing Law & Compliance Conference is not just for lawyers—programming is designed for staffing firm owners and executives, human resource professionals, compliance managers, recruiters, and attorneys. It takes place May 16–17 at the Westin Washington, DC, Downtown in Washington, DC. Visit to register at the best rates available.

Industry Scores Big Victory—California Antistaffing Bill Withdrawn

California Assemblymember Matt Haney (D-San Francisco) has decided not to advance AB 2741, a bill that would have imposed new rules on employers and staffing agencies that place contracted workers in the state, and has amended the bill to remove all references to staffing. The California State Assembly’s committee on labor and employment has confirmed that the bill has been pulled from the agenda. The bill would have imposed major new obligations and costs on staffing firms and clients. ASA and California Staffing Professionals, an ASA-affiliated chapter—led by longtime ASA lobbyist Mike Robson—mounted a comprehensive statewide lobbying campaign aimed at demonstrating that the bill was unnecessary and would do far more harm than good.
