Do Non Competes Work April 21 Webinar 2_edited.jpg
Do Non-Competes Work Anymore? 
Strategies for Responding to States Limiting Enforceability 

What we have learned from the pandemic is that owners and operators must be prepared for anything.  It has become clear talent (and retaining talent) is at a premium, making today’s job market more competitive than ever. 
 
While owners and operators may have been less concerned that a loyal employee would receive and accept an offer to move on to another opportunity in the past, that concern has universally grown in the past year. 
 
Our panelists will take a deep dive into how staffing companies can protect themselves and preserve their teams in the battle for staffing professional talent.

STAFFING INDUSTRY M&A MARKETPLACE: A Look Back at 2021 and Looking Forward in 2022

Merger & Acquisition activity in the Staffing Industry flourished in 2021 with owners and management taking advantage of a fertile market to grow their business. With PPP Loans being forgiven, Staffing Industry executives saw this as an opportunity to reinvest in their company and grow their existing business as well as expand into new niches to further expand their footprint.
 

This activity will certainly continue in 2022 as Staffing Industry Executives will look to deepen their resources. Our panel of Staffing Industry Merger & Acquisition veterans will have a candid look at what transpired in 2021, how many of the deals were structured, and what they think the outlook on 2022 will be.

Compliance is something that applies to the IT Staffing Industry, no matter what their size is.

Despite their best efforts, companies frequently make the same mistakes when it comes to a thorough and effective compliance strategy.

Correct Classification of your employees PPT image_edited.jpg
Correct classification of YOUR employees?
Per diem classification for traveling nurse, healthcare, and IT staffing firms

Correctly classifying workers as independent contractors is being scrutinized more today than at any time throughout our country’s history. While the prior administration looked to ease the burden of employers proving valid independent contractor relationships at the federal level, our current administration appears to be more in line with states that have followed the more stringent ABC Test (most prominently, California).  


With the overwhelming high demand and minimal supply of these high-level professionals, the consultants carry much more leverage in deciding how they prefer to be classified (W-2 vs. independent contractor).
