Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Staffing Agency Requirements For Employees


The bill requires a staffing agency that places temporary and part-time employees with work-site employers to provide the employees specific information concerning the terms and conditions of employment. The information must be provided in writing before the end of the first pay period. The bill requires the staffing agency to post a notice in its workplace that includes the name and telephone number of the division of labor standards and statistics (division) in the department of labor and employment and a description of employees' rights to the receipt of the required terms and conditions of employment. A staffing agency and a work-site employer are prohibited from charging an employee: A fee for certain work-related expenses or deducting expenses from the employee's wages without authorization from the employee; The cost of required specific transportation services; or More than the actual cost of optional transportation. The bill prohibits a staffing agency from knowingly issuing, distributing, circulating, or providing false, fraudulent, or misleading information to an employee or applicant for employment and from refusing to refund fees or costs owed to the employee. The bill requires each staffing agency to annually register and pay a fee to the division. Each staffing agency is required to submit information to the division in a form and manner required by the division. The division is required to maintain a list of the registration status of each staffing agency on its website. Employers who use staffing agencies are required to verify whether the staffing agency is registered with the division. The division may assess a fine for a violation and may revoke or suspend the registration of a staffing agency for any violation. The division is authorized to promulgate rules, including rules that state the information that a staffing agency is required to submit to the division and that establish circumstances where a staffing agency's registration may be revoked or suspended. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
