Assemblyman DeAngelo accepts recommended NJSA amendment to A2534
Last week Assemblyman DeAngelo accepted and supported an amendment proposed by NJSA to his proposed new Employee Termination Reporting Requirements bill (A2534). Originally the bill required employers to report every 15 days their employment terminations (similar to the New Hire Reporting requirements). With the staffing industry's frequent termination and rehiring of employees associated with the ending and beginning of assignments, the original language would have been an administrative nightmare for the industry. 

NJSA recommended, and the Assemblyman agreed to, an amendment that would define reportable employment termination for the temporary staffing industry as an employee who has not worked for the temporary staffing firm for 60 consecutive days.

NJSA has sent a letter of thanks to Assemblyman DeAngelo and his staff for their consideration of NJSA's issue.

Senator Weinberg's, along with Assemblywomen Quijano and Muoio's, Legislative Proposal on Wage Claims Enforcement, Penalties and Procedures (S1396/A862) Moving Quickly in the Senate
S1396/A862 propose major anti-business changes in how individuals can pursue wage claims in New Jersey. NJSA has issued a Position Paper and a Staffing Industry Impact Paper on this critically important and harmful legislation proposal. Note that the current Senate version was filed as a substitute at the Senate Committee hearing on June 6 and reported out on the same day to the Senate, where it is working it way onto the voting agenda. The Assembly version was offered as a substitute bill on June 20 and reported out on the same day. At least the Assembly bill has now been referred to the Assembly Budget Committee rather than directly back to the Assembly. Clearly the legislative leadership is "fast tracking" this bill (click here for a copy of S1396). 

NJSA's Legislative Committee recommends every staffing firm manager and owner read the Position Paper and Impact Paper on S1396/A862 and reach out to your Senator and Assemblymen and let them know they need to vote against this bill.

U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 3.08 million temporary and contract workers per week during the first three months of 2016, according to the re-benchmarked quarterly ASA Staffing Employment and Sales Survey data released in June. This number slightly surpassed the pre-recession first quarter peak in 2006.
