TDI and FLI Employee Taxes - On May 26, the NJ Senate passed Senate bill 1376 which changes the calculation basis for determining annual employee rates for temporary disability insurance. 

S-3176/A-4898 amends the current law in order to improve the administrative process followed by the state each year to determine employee rates for Temporary Disability Insurance. The New Jersey Staffing Alliance supports this legislation because instead of using an estimate of the current calendar year as a basis to determine the following year's employee rate, the legislation shifts the basis of rate determination from the calendar year to the just completed fiscal year period (July through June). In this fashion, rate determination is based on a full twelve months of actual receipts and expenditures with the new rate now being published in a timelier manner (early September rather than mid-November) so that employers and insurance providers can establish payroll deduction levels and employers will be able to plan for the following year in a more knowing and deliberative manner.

NJSA urges the NJ Assembly and Governor to pass this legislation as soon as possible.  Click here for the Legal & Legislative Committee's position paper on the bills.

In marketing today, there are more tools than ever...and more ways to misuse them!

In this NJSA webinar, we'll examine the most popular marketing tools being used in the staffing industry today. We'll look at both digital and traditional marketing, and show you how to get the best returns on your time and money.

Here are some of the tools (and questions) we will review:
  • Direct mail - does it work?  If so, how?
  • Email marketing - can you get people to actually read your email?
  • Blogging & social sharing - what works...and what's a waste of time?
  • SEO - how do you get to the top of Google results?
  • Sales collateral - is it needed?
