Press Room

 

It’s time to jump-start the New Year! The Mid-Atlantic Staffing Association (MASA) is getting things rolling with their MASA Annual Kickoff Event on January 29, 8am to 5pm at the Hilton by the Philadelphia Airport. 

This is a great event to get energized and excited for 2013. The event includes:

 
 
The only certainty in the market today is that things are uncertain. There are no crystal balls to tell us where things are headed. Although it has improved over the last few months, there are no guarantees about where the market will go over the coming year. For temporary staffing companies, the uncertainty can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be.

 
Take the stress out of December and preparing for Year End by using Tricom's Year End Bulletin to stay on top of legislative changes that are important to the staffing industry.
 
We've collected all the relevant, timely and necessary information you need to ensure your staffing company is staying up-to-date with changes that directly impact your business.

Legislative Updates

 
"...Arizona Revised Statutes § 23-730.01 imposes a Special Assessment (SA) on taxable wages paid in 2011 and 2012. This is necessary to meet federally imposed unemployment trust fund obligations. The Department of Economic Security (DES) Unemployment Insurance (UI) Tax Section is responsible for collecting the SA along with employers’ regular quarterly UI taxes (reported on Line 7, Part C of the Unemployment Tax and Wage Report, form UC-018)..."
 
 
"Like many other states, Wisconsin’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) Reserve Fund had to rely on federal loans to help fund unemployment benefits paid to record numbers of claimants during and following the deep national recession of 2007-09.
 
The federal government began charging states interest on these loans in 2011, and Wisconsin in September 2011 made its first payment, totaling $42.3 million, with funds collected through a special assessment on employers.
 
 
It’s only half as much as the increase this year, but Ohio’s minimum wage will get a boost on Jan. 1, 2013. The minimum wage will rise 15 cents, to $7.85 an hour, in the new year, the Ohio Department of Commerce announced yesterday. For tipped employees, the new minimum will be $3.93 per hour, an increase of 8 cents an hour.
