Ed is one of the nation’s leading authorities on the legal and public policy aspects of employment services and workforce outsourcing. Since 1989, he has served as general counsel and senior counsel of the American Staffing Association whose member firms provide workforce services and solutions, including temporary and contract staffing, recruiting and permanent placement, outplacement, training, and human resource consulting. He has written hundreds of articles and papers, and spoken to business groups throughout the country, on the unique legal issues affecting third-party staffing arrangements.
Since passage of the Affordable Care Act, Ed has represented the staffing industry regarding development of the employer responsibility provisions and led the industry’s advocacy efforts on ACA issues before Congress and the administration. He also served on the executive committee of Employers for Flexibility in Health Care, a coalition representing businesses on ACA issues in the retail, restaurant, food service, hospitality, construction, and other service industries — and testified before Congress on how the law affects businesses and workers in those sectors of the economy.
