Rep. Ed Neilson Works to Pass Legislation for Temporary Workers Employee Right to Know

As many Pennsylvanians still struggle to find employment, Rep. Ed Neilson of the 169th Legislative District of Philadelphia County is hoping to protect their rights by introducing legislation that will provide more information to temporary workers who find jobs through employment agencies.

In December, Rep. Neilson sent a letter to fellow members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives explaining that the legislation he is introducing will make sure temp workers have the basic information they need to carry out their work “in a safe and prepared manner.” He also hopes to limit the fees charged to temporary workers by employment agencies. In his letter, he said that temporary workers should feel that the employment agency “has treated them fairly and communicated in an open and honest fashion.”

We’ll watch to see what develops from this new legislation.
