What Does a New Presidential Administration Mean for Your Business? Find Out at the ASA Staffing Law Conference

The 2021 ASA Staffing Law Conference takes place virtually April 29–30. It’s the only event dedicated to the legal and regulatory issues facing staffing companies, and it will feature the session “Immigration Reform and Enforcement: What Staffing Firms Can Expect in the Next Four Years.”

The enforcement of immigration laws over the past four years has escalated and staffing firms have been in the bullseye of enforcement agency activities. Find out how recent changes in Washington, DC, will affect immigration reform and enforcement for employers. Hear from leading experts about what will likely change for your business operations and what can’t change over the next four years. Get the latest information on the status of virtual I-9s—and whether there is any hope that they’re here to stay—and how to navigate the latest immigration rules to avoid fines and protect your company.

ASA-certified professionals can earn continuing education hours at this year’s conference, and rates are as low as $195. Visit to learn more.
