Avoid Unnecessary Risks in Client Agreements

Staffing companies should not assume risks related to their client’s business and should not take on liability for the client’s own products and services.

To help staffing companies address indemnity issues, ASA has published resources such as a risk philosophy document you can share with clients, suggested contract language, articles, a presentation slide deck, and more—get them in the ASA Indemnity Tool Kit at americanstaffing.net.
