Industry News for the Week of August 26


Mackenzie Best
Workforce Industry News for the week of August 26, 2013 This week in the industry… The ACA Waiting Game (via HRE Online) “Surprised by the sudden postponement in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements, experts weigh in on ways employers can take advantage of the delay and what the future requirements may involve.” Does Your Disaster Recovery Plan Include Contingent Workers? (via The Staffing Stream) “America is no stranger to disasters. Efficient companies today enact business continuity and disaster recovery plans as an essential part of their operational planning… If staffing agencies and ‘host employers’ share responsibility for the well-being of temporary workers, then what steps should be taken, and by whom?” ‘The Great Shift’: Americans Not Working (via Economix – NYTimes Blog) “Yes, the unemployment rate has fallen. But almost the entire reason it has fallen is the drop in the number of people in the labor force — either working or actively looking…  the initial wave of baby-boomer retirements plays only a small role in the drop; the labor force participation rate has fallen almost as sharply for people aged 25 to 54 as it has for the overall adult population.” That’s it for this week. Be sure to bookmark the Beeline blog to stay informed about the industry trends and findings – and don’t forget to have a safe & happy holiday weekend!
