Paid Sick Leave - Grassroots Action Needed

 

Local ordinances mandating paid sick leave and a higher minimum wage have a negative effect on the state's business climate. That's why the NJSA supports legislation (A4363/ S2865) that would prevent municipalities from setting the terms and conditions of employment offered by any private employer, including mandatory paid sick leave and the minimum wage.

 

Locally mandated terms of employment have real economic consequences - especially on staffing firms and the people they employ. NJSA, in conjunction with a consortium of business associations, is asking member firms to continue to communicate with your elected officials not to enact more of these mandates. Nine municipalities, including New Jersey's three biggest cities, have adopted ordinances requiring employers to offer paid sick leave, and legislation is under consideration to grant municipalities the authority to set their own minimum wage

The Seminar on CLIENT AUDITS -WHAT HAPPENS PAST 1-9 COMPLETION with Helen Konrad on May 14 was rated by almost 100% of attendees as excellent.  

 

"I always learn something new about I-9 from Helen," said NJSA Co-President Kathy Warren of Bryant Staffing.

 

Ms. Konrad also provided attendees with information on how to avoid an audit and steps staffing firms can take to be prepared.
NJSA Members Invited to Participate in 2015 ASA Care Awards 

NJSA Members are invited to participate in the 2015 ASA Care Awards to recognize outstanding corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives among ASA member companies, associate members, and affiliated chapters.


 

Any CSR initiative active at the time of submission is eligible. An application must be submitted, along with additional materials (e.g., videos, images) that highlight the program or initiative. The deadline is July 1.


Forecasters in the latest Wall Street Journal survey estimate the U.S. economy contracted at a 0.3% pace in the first three months of this year due to hits from winter weather and the West Coast port slowdown. However, the panel, on average, sees annualized economic growth of 2.8% in the current quarter ending June 30, supported by stronger wage growth and employment gains. In addition, they see the drag from weak trade and a strong dollar dissipating by the third and fourth quarters, delivering average economic growth at a 3.0% pace.


Our mission is to be the advocate for the success and growth of NJSA members and the New Jersey staffing industry through leadership in legislation, education, ethics and professional business practices.
