Prevent Workplace Harassment; Comply With the Law

Provide training for temporary workers—and comply with the law—with cost-effective and state-specific training. ASA has introduced a comprehensive online course specifically for staffing company use.

ASA has partnered with Kantola Training Solutions to provide full-service training for the temporary workers staffing companies employ. It allows you to track candidate and employee progress, download status reports, and more. The training was co-developed with Littler, the world’s largest labor and employment law firm.

New training requirements recently took effect in California, Connecticut, and Illinois; the training requirements in Delaware, Maine, and New York have been in effect for some time.

Visit americanstaffing.net/harassmentprevention for details. ASA members receive a discount. ASA also offers a basic harassment prevention training product in collaboration with the New York Staffing Association, an ASA-affiliated chapter.
