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 July, we talked about how a new, convenient way to deposit checks has been making things more complicated for staffing companies who issue payroll checks. With mobile check deposits, it raises the possibility of a check being deposited twice: once through a bank’s mobile deposit app and once through a check cashing store.

The question becomes who is left to make good on these multiple transactions if the parties are unable to recover directly from the employee?

Every October, the staffing industry gets together at one of the biggest conferences of the year: ASA Staffing World. This year’s event will be held in Nashville, and we are particularly excited to be attending. We think you should be, too.

Staffing World offers a great chance to recharge your batteries while learning about new trends, new providers to the industry, legislative changes that could impact your business, and more. And, (of course!) it’s a chance to have a little fun.

It’s meant to be a convenience for banking customers: simply use your smartphone and your bank’s mobile banking app, take a picture of the check you wish to deposit, and deposit a check from anywhere, skipping the trip to the bank or check cashing place. But what actually happens to the check after the mobile deposit has been made?

Mobile check deposits are increasing in popularity, and with their increased usage also comes new risks and avenues for fraud.
