About Staffing Legal News

Staffing Legal News is your only source for real time news and commentary about active staffing and recruiting litigation across the U.S. We also supply important compliance and legal affairs updates. SLN is an essential tool for staffing firm owners, executives, managers, HR professionals, attorneys and other industry followers. Because we are independent, there are no self-imposed restrictions on who and what we can report on. And there is plenty of reporting to do – from bitter non-compete wars to the state and federal regulatory onslaught of recent years. Staffing a simple business? Not so much anymore.

We don’t write lengthy Law Review articles, because we know you are busy. Our stories are short and informative. Our commentary is practical. We are here to provide a real time view of the everyday legal risks facing staffing firms and commentary that can help reduce that risk.

The Chief Editor of Staffing Legal news is industry veteran Bill Josey. Bill knows the business from the ground up. As a young litigator he pursued debt collection cases for staffing and recruiting firms. This led to handling non-compete cases and other complex litigation for his staffing clients. He went on to become General Counsel of Kforce, where he led the Legal and Risk Management functions for 14 years as the company grew into one of the largest staffing firms in the United States.

Bill returned to private law practice in 2014, but in 2020 was called in-house again to serve as General Counsel of highly regarded search firm Lucas Group, where he oversaw all legal affairs through the difficult days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lucas Group was acquired by Korn Ferry in late 2021, and today Bill is back serving the staffing industry as a freelance General Counsel while fulfilling his desire to deliver timely and informative legal news to the industry.
