With all the discussion of the Affordable Care Act legislation recently, we thought it was appropriate to take a stance on our principles regarding our commitment to compliance with ACA laws. Fortunately, the American Staffing Association developed a "Statement of Principles" that we have fully adopted at Link Staffing. We would like to share these principles with you:
"While implementing the ACA presents challenges to staffing firms due to the unique characteristics of their work forces, the staffing industry is deeply committed to compliance with the law. To that end, ASA members commit to the following principles:"
America's staffing companies match millions of people to millions of jobs every day: about 2.9 million per day, and 11.5 million per year. U.S. businesses turn to staffing firms to fill work force gaps, to augment their own staff, and to find new employees. Temporary staffing offers flexibility to both employers and employees, and often provides workers with a bridge to permanent employment. Temporary employees work in all occupations and skill levels, and a growing number are making flex ible work a career choice.
We would like to thank the American Staffing Association for their diligent work on this issue. We hope you'll agree that an ethical, legal solution to the challenges facing companies with regard to ACA is the only solution worth seeking.
