They share any information that’s available concerning our business or things that might affect our business. And I think they also are very effective in helping you understand why you need to look at things differently if you’re not looking at them the right way.

We are constantly on the alert for all the latest industry news, legislative updates, trends and more that could possibly impact your staffing business. Our president and CEO, Julie Ann Blazei, also shares her insights on the staffing industry in her message (link below). And when we don’t see information about a topic we feel is critical for you to know, we create it ourselves to share in our monthly email.

Press Room

In the staffing business, it may seem like you’re required to fill out dozens of forms with each new hire. It can be a lot to keep track of, and it can be a big headache if a form is incomplete or filled out incorrectly. 

One form that has been the source of confusion for some has been the I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The US Federal Government requires the I-9 to be used to verify the identity and employment authorization of every individual you hire to work in the United States. This includes citizens and non-citizens. 

Why it’s important to get involved in the American Staffing Association (ASA) 

 

It’s critical for a staffing company owner to keep up with legislative changes at local, state and federal levels. Changes to the law can have a huge impact on your profitability, and may even change the way you conduct your staffing business. That’s why we post legislative updates to our Tricom website, Facebook page and Twitter feed as soon as we hear about them. But wouldn’t it be nice to have a voice in those legislative decisions before they are voted into law?

Legislative Updates

21 States will be added to the FUTA credit reduction list due to failure to pay back on loans from the federal government to continue paying unemployment benefits.  After a state has had an outstanding Title XII loan balance for two consecutive years on January 1, employers in that state face a 0.30% reduction in the FUTA credit if the loan is not paid back by November 10 of that same year.

The U.S. Department of Labor has notified the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the California Employment Development Department that California is now a credit reduction state as a result of its outstanding loan balances. Per the IRS website:

On August 15, 2011 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced E-Verify Self Check is now available in a Spanish-Language version and now accessible to residents in 16 additional states. E-Verify Self Check is a voluntary, fast, free and secure online service that allows U.S. workers to check their employment eligibility and/or data inaccuracies. Now available in 21 states and USCIS will continue to evaluate and improve the Self Check service, which intends to expand nationwide by spring 2012.
