The Legal Cornerstone of Staffing: Celebrating National Staffing Employee Week

Taylor English is proud to be a member of the American Staffing Association. We are pleased to recognize and celebrate National Staffing Employee Week from September 11th to 17th. This dedicated week is a testament to the vital contributions of millions of individuals employed by staffing agencies throughout the U.S.

Legal Standards

National Staffing Employee Week offers an opportunity to explore the legal aspects of the staffing industry and the rights and responsibilities of staffing employees and agencies.

1. Employment Contracts and Agreements: In the staffing industry, employment contracts and agreements form the foundation of the relationship between staffing agencies, employees, and client companies. These legal documents outline the terms and conditions of employment, including compensation, job responsibilities, and the duration of the assignment.

2. Wage and Hour Laws: Compliance with federal and state wage and hour laws is paramount. Staffing agencies must ensure that staffing employees are paid in accordance with minimum wage laws, overtime regulations, and other wage-related provisions. Vigilance in this area is essential to prevent disputes and potential legal issues.

3. Workplace Discrimination and Harassment: Staffing employees, like all workers, have the right to a workplace free from discrimination and harassment. Staffing agencies and client companies must ensure that they have robust anti-discrimination and harassment policies in place and that they take prompt action to address any complaints or incidents that arise.

4. Health and Safety: Occupational health and safety regulations apply to staffing employees just as they do to permanent employees. Staffing agencies and client companies share responsibility for providing a safe working environment. Compliance with safety regulations is crucial to avoid legal liability in the event of workplace accidents or injuries.


National Staffing Employee Week is not only an occasion to celebrate the hard work and dedication of staffing employees but also an opportunity to highlight the importance of legal compliance within the staffing industry.

1. Review Contracts and Agreements: Use this week to review employment contracts and agreements to ensure they are up-to-date, legally sound, and compliant with labor and employment laws.

2. Conduct Training: Provide training to staffing agency personnel, client companies, and staffing employees on legal matters such as discrimination, harassment, accommodations, and workplace safety.

3. Audit Compliance: Conduct internal audits to ensure compliance with wage and hour laws, workplace safety regulations, and immigration laws.

National Staffing Employee Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of millions of staffing employees across the U.S. It is also a reminder of the legal responsibilities that staffing agencies and client companies bear in ensuring fair and lawful employment practices. By combining our appreciation for staffing employees, we can create a workforce that is not only efficient but also just and equitable.

National Staffing Employee Week celebrates the contributions of the millions of individuals employed by U.S. staffing agencies each week. During this special week, staffing agencies from across the nation host special events honoring their greatest asset: their temporary and contract employees.
