ASA Files Lawsuit Challenging Nevada Ban on Construction Staffing

ASA has filed suit against the state of Nevada challenging a law that, effective Oct. 1, 2021, would bar staffing agencies from providing skilled construction labor—the first time any state has attempted to impose an outright ban on the services a staffing agency can provide. The lawsuit, filed Aug. 31, seeks an injunction and a declaration that the law is unconstitutional.

ASA Meets With Top Officials at Departments of Labor and Commerce

Earlier this week, ASA staff met with U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and Kevin Gallagher, senior adviser to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. The introductory meetings focused on the importance of the staffing industry to the U.S. economy as well as the role ASA members have played during the Covid-19 pandemic.

ASA staff apprised Secretary Walsh of the many opportunities the staffing industry offers the U.S. workforce, including flexibility and choice. Secretary Walsh noted his past dealings with the industry when he was a state legislator and the important role that staffing companies play.

Gallagher also was familiar with the industry through his previous role as deputy chief of staff for then-Rhode Island Gov. Raimondo, and noted the industry’s commitment to worker training and upskilling. Both Walsh and Gallagher suggested that this should be the first of several meetings between the staffing industry and their agencies as the economy continues to recover from the pandemic.
