Determining which employer is legally responsible

When you work through a temp or staffing agency, you may legally have one employer, or you may have multiple legal employers. Before any legal action can be taken on your behalf, we will need to determine which employer is legally responsible. Some factors that will help define your employment relationship with both your former employment or staffing agency and the employer who you actually performed work for may include:

  • Who directed your work?
  • Who managed and/or supervised you?
  • How long was your employment with each employer?
  • Did the company or individual that you performed work for actually have the right to fire you? Did the employment, temp or staffing agency have the legal right to fire you?

In questions about defining an employment relationship, the focus for a court will be on your individual relationship with both the employment staffing firm and the individual or corporation that you performed work for.

Staffing agencies are often unregulated, and many do not play by the rules required of all California employers by the law. Some staffing agencies may believe that their contracted workers do not have any employment rights – they are wrong.
