On Monday, February 6th, 2023, Governor Murphy signed into law A1474/S511, commonly referred to as the “Temporary Workers’ Bill of Rights” which gives certain rights to temporary associates and also imposes restrictions on transportation provided by temporary staffing services. This act is intended to further protect the labor and employment rights of temporary associates.
Staffing Alternatives has followed this bill since it was first introduced in 2021. For the past two years, we have rigorously fought against it being passed in its current state. We have worked with both local and national staffing associations as well as New Jersey Legislators to propose a more moderate bill.
It is our belief that the bill will not go into effect in its current state as the New Jersey Department of Labor and New Jersey’s governing body still needs to offer guidance and take numerous steps prior to the bill being able to take effect.
Although opposed to the current bill, Staffing Alternatives has been preparing for its passage for quite some time. We have already developed solutions and have answers for any questions you have about how the bill may affect the temporary staffing services you receive from SA.
