Why small staffers take down the 'big boys'
Staffing Talk
If you ask industry insiders where staffing is headed over the next few decades, many will look at the trends of recent years and posit that the industry will continue becoming more concentrated. By that they mean the "big boys" (Adecco, Randstad, Manpower, Recruit, etc.) will continue getting bigger, while the market share held by the small- and mid-size companies will keep getting smaller. So it’s the disappearing middle class phenomenon, only equated to staffing. "I'm not buying it," Trevor Kupfer argues.

EEOC holds both staffing firms and staffing clients responsible under EEO laws
Mondaq
Staffing is a vibrant and growing industry, employing more than 2 million workers per day. Effective use of temporary labor helps the 90 percent of U.S. companies that use staffing agencies to ramp up and down, as production needs fluctuate, without incurring the costs associated with managing employment processes. Notwithstanding the interrelatedness of staffing agencies' and clients' workforces, it is common for client companies to assume that they have no EEO obligations towards staffing firm employees assigned to their work site. It is also common for staffing firms to assume that they are not responsible for any discrimination, retaliation or harassment that their employees face at their clients' work sites. Both assumptions are often wrong.

Job titles aren't that important
Harvard Business Review Blog Network
Are companies creating their own skills gap? While much of the skills deficit in the U.S. is fueled by a sheer lack of high skill labor for in-demand occupations, a recent CareerBuilder study of more than 2,000 companies suggests that employers may unwittingly be playing a part. Half of hiring managers said that they were concerned about the expanding skills gap, and around the same amount say they limit their candidate pools by only looking at applicants with specific job titles.

IRS weighs US health coverage rules in tax lobbying fight
Thomson Reuters News & Insight
The IRS has been assigned to implement the employer coverage section of Obama's 2010 Affordable Care Act. Temporary staffing companies are worried. They fear being hit by the law's penalty if they do not provide health coverage to their temporary workers. Hire Counsel, a temporary legal staffing firm serving law firms and corporations, is asking the IRS to exempt staffing agencies from providing health insurance for temporary employees, according to its March 18 comment letter. In May, the IRS will hold a hearing on the "minimum essential coverage" health care rules. The IRS is also expected to soon issue guidance on what new forms employers and employees must fill out for health care purposes.
