Help Clients Understand Their Obligations With the Updated Joint Employment Tool Kit

Are your clients confused about the various laws and rules pertaining to joint employment in third-party staffing arrangements—especially in light of the U.S. Department of Labor’s recent rescission of the Trump-era joint employer legal test? To assist members in addressing client’s questions and concerns regarding joint employment, ASA has updated the ASA Joint Employment Tool Kit.

The tool kit offers a collection of resources to help staffing companies address client concerns about co-employment (the relationship between a staffing firm and its client in which each has legal rights and duties with respect to the same employees), including updated fact sheets, issue papers, and sample letters to clients that dispel myths regarding joint employment and explain how working with a staffing agency can actually protect clients from liability. It’s free to ASA members.
