Compliance Preconference: Health Care Staffing


Add the Health Care Staffing Compliance Preconference Program to Your Registration

Attendees of the ASA Staffing Law & Compliance Conference have the option of also registering for a compliance preconference program called “Health Care Staffing: Legal and Legislative Updates,” which takes place, May 15, 1–5 p.m. at the Westin Washington, DC, Downtown. The main conference begins at the same location the next morning.

You do not have to be currently operating in the health care staffing sector to register. Preconference attendees will come away with important legal and legislative updates that affect a major sector of the staffing industry, including federal and state efforts to regulate staffing agencies with health care lines of business; top current and forthcoming legal issues in health care staffing; and current best practices for compliance and growth.

The preconference registration rate is an additional $200 and you must first register for the Staffing Law & Compliance Conference in order to add the preconference program.
