Dept. of Labor Gets Serious With The Temp Industry

The Department of Labor has issued guidance regarding joint employer liability this week.  The DOL issued guidance, FAQ’s, illustrations and fact sheets in the hopes that employers and temp agencies will finally realize that they can’t escape responsibility for their workers!  For too long we’ve seen them pointing the finger at each other saying it’s the other guys fault, but no longer.  We hope this sends a clear mesage that the industry needs to clean up it’s act.

Our good friends at the National Employment Law Project (NELP) have issued a press release around the issue.  Please click here to read the release.

Discrimination Rampant in the Temp Industry

The Center for Investigative Journalism has found widespread discrimination against African American temp workers around the country.  We applaud this report for shining a national spotlight on a problem we have seen every day in our organizing and we hope other will take notice and help put an end to discrimination.
