  •  So, what happens in a case (7+ / 0-)

    that faces me, right now?

    I have to staff up probably 15-20 low-skilled laborers for 8 weeks, 40 hours / week, for a construction project. I do NOT want to hire those folks permanently, as my project will end and who knows when we'll get the next. I would far rather a responsible agency (responsible, as defined by the other labor I've spoken with who have been employed by them) to cover all the interviewing, drug testing, taxes etc than ramp up to do it myself.

    What would you suggest?

      thoroughly, make sure that the agency isn't a frequent violator using independent third party sources. Some agencies are worse than others. Responsible moral employers have a duty to make sure that they don't do business with abusive staffing agencies.
