The ‘American Rescue Plan’ Is Set to Become Law—Learn What It Means 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 one of the planned sessions is “The ‘American Rescue Plan’—What Does It Mean for Employers?”

Employers will face major cost increases if Congress passes President Biden’s sweeping $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief plan today. The plan would re-enact the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, expand federal unemployment insurance benefits, and mandate back hazard pay for frontline workers, and more. New grant money will be available to the hardest-hit small businesses, and new financing support provided for others. Find out what’s at stake for your company. Sponsored by Essential StaffCARE.

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