Charting the potential potholes of indemnity agreements
The Staffing Stream
In general, indemnification agreements make sense: If I injure you, I will fix it. Often, however, indemnification agreements in the staffing industry go well beyond this to have staffing firms indemnify their clients for occurrences the staffing supplier has little or no ability to control.

As 2014 draws to a close, companies of all sizes and shapes across the nation continue to grapple with the complexities of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) myriad requirements.

Many of the issues involving the “minimum value” and “minimum essential benefits” have been addressed by the majority of staffing firms in the industry, according to survey data compiled by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), yet 2015 will present mandates beyond those basic obligations.

Millennial, Gen X, and baby boomer candidates aren't really so different
ERE
Right now, there are three generations in the U.S. workforce: millennials, generation Xers, and baby boomers. Each of these age cohorts makes up about one third of the workforce, but by 2020, as baby boomers retire, millennials are projected to make up nearly half of the working-age population. At the Indeed Hiring Lab, we took a look at how each of these generations is searching for jobs today to get a better idea of the coming talent opportunities and challenges.
