A federal court yesterday denied the staffing industry’s motion to enjoin the Temporary Workers’ Bill of Rights Law enacted by the New Jersey legislature earlier this year. Despite finding that the law likely will result in irreparable harm to many staffing firms, the court held that the industry’s arguments that the law is unconstitutional were unlikely to succeed at trial. Under federal law, irreparable harm and likelihood of success on the underlying legal arguments are both necessary for an injunction to be issued.
ASA and the New Jersey Staffing Alliance, an ASA-affiliated chapter, brought the lawsuit along with the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. The associations are assessing the implications of the court’s ruling and determining what the next steps should be in their ongoing efforts to mitigate the effects of this onerous law.
