Stand Together and Make Your Voice Heard
Our legislators are passing laws that hurt our industry. They need to understand the negative impact that laws like AB 5 have on our industry. We need to help them understand. We need to stand together.
Meet with your California Legislators
Legislative Day is a great opportunity to directly participate in the legislative process and impact the bills and budget items that concern you. Meeting your Legislators, letting them know what you do, is vital to the success of your business.
Here are just a couple of the laws that could impact the staffing industry.
Prohibits employers from hiring workers, utilizing temporary workers, or contracting out, unless and until offer of extra hours has been made to existing part-time employees.
AB5 Allows an employee to bring a private right of action against the employer for failure to comply. Denies/discourages clients from utilizing temporary staffing and direct-to-hire firms.
AB 1008 makes it an “unlawful practice” under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) for an employer to seek the disclosure of an applicant’s criminal history at any time before a conditional offer of employment is made.
Legislators passed AB 1008 in response to statistics showing roughly seven million Californians – or nearly one in three adults – have arrest or conviction records that can undermine their efforts to obtain employment.
