According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, temporary agency employment grew by an astounding 9.6%. And whether you call them contingent workers, contractors, or good ol’ fashioned temps, the number of personnel joining the ranks of the “free agent economy” is on the rise and, managed properly, can add another dimension of flexibility, effectiveness, and efficiency to your business. However, it can present some interesting challenges from both a talent management and a workforce management perspective. During this informative webcast, we’ll explore some of the obstacles, options, and opportunities of leveraging this large and growing sector of the labor pool.
Temporary, freelance and project-based workers are fast becoming a staple of the U.S. workplace and research suggests that around a third of all jobs are now temporary in nature.
While utilizing temporary labor can provide significant cost savings over taking on internal, direct hire workers, engaging temporary staff of all kinds can expose your company to significant risks....especially in the great state of California!
Our virtual conference - led by Emergent President, Bill Inman - will alert you to key CA compliance issues to watch out for and will show you how your company can mitigate these risks effectively.

Contractor safety is a significant issue because contract and contingent workers are disproportionately likely to be injured or killed on the job. The financial and legal risks for employers are also considerable. OSHA/MSHA can issue dual citations, depending on the circumstances present, injuries can result in tort litigation unless the worker can be classified as a borrowed employee or the company can be deemed the statutory employer. Increasingly, individual managers are also sued under the torts of negligence training or supervision. This program will discuss OSHA/MSHA and tort theories of liability, the IRS classification system, new data on the safety of contingent workers, and workers' compensation issues. It will also discuss how to proactively prequalify contractors, and coordinate training and other program activities to improve overall workplace safety.
