Protect your business. Staffing professionals and their clients need to know the facts about co-employment - the relationship between a staffing firm and its client in which each has legal rights and duties with respect to the temporary and contract employees that the staffing firm assigns to the client.

Co-Employment provides those facts and reviews the legal and operational implications of co-employment in many critical areas affecting the terms and conditions of employment, such as employee benefits, workers' compensation, and labor relations.

This sixth edition - published by ASA in 2007 - addresses significant recent developments and reflects the current status of the evolving area of co-employment law. This most recent printing includes expanded information on complying with equal employment opportunity laws and understanding the EEO regulations that apply to Internet recruitment.
