There is always a danger hanging around the neck of temporary workers and therefore to protect them, Gov. Deval Patrick has signed a legislation that says, from now onwards, the short-term employment agencies that deals with temporary workers will work in a much transparent way.
Without any sort of elaborations and discussions, Patrick signed this bill on Monday at the State House to protect the futures of temporary workers.
The new law goes like this:
- No registration fee and criminal record check fee will be charged from the temporary employees.
- Any other kind of fee that tends to reduce the pay of a temporary worker below than the minimum wage limit will be barred.
- If an employee is sent to a worksite with no jobs available there, then the agency will have to reimburse the worker.
- It is mandatory for the Staffing Agencies to share the wages, worker's compensation carrier and other basic information with the temporary workers in the beginning only.
With the introduction of this legislation, there appears a high hope for the existence of a fair treatment towards temporary workers in Massachusetts.
There is no doubt to say that it would be quite challenging for the Massachusetts Hospital Association to implement this law successfully but they promised to work hard and fight till they win.
