Safely Back to Work? Get the Legal Answers Your Staffing Firm Needs

The upcoming ASA Staffing Law Conference will deliver the timely information and targeted legal expertise staffing firms need as more employees return to work and new postpandemic issues surface. This virtual event takes place April 29–30. Among the sessions:

Workplace Safety and Vaccine Programs in a Postpandemic World
While Covid-19 vaccines should mean staffing firms have less to worry about, in fact, 2021 brings new legal and operational issues to replace those 2020 headaches. Workplace safety requirements are evolving with new state safety and health mandates, and changes in the White House and government agency leadership will mean new enforcement approaches by OSHA. Workplace vaccine programs raise workers’ comp and employer liability issues as well as wage and hour and equal opportunity concerns. Add to that clients with varying approaches to all of the above, and staffing firms are left with “new normalitis.” Hear from experts who will help your staffing firm navigate changes, stay compliant, and keep your business healthy going forward.

Get the latest information and resources you need to protect your business and take advantage of growth opportunities this year and beyond. Reserve your spot today at staffinglawconference.net. Rates are as low as $195.
