Code of Ethics

Matura Farrington Staffing Services consists of ethical professionals who take pride in their work. As a Company, we achieve professional satisfaction from maintaining a set of standards that have been defined by us, and the leading association in our industry, The American Staffing Association.  By maintaining these standards, we earn our clients’ trust.

Our clients are comprised of Los Angeles’ top law firms and corporations who demand of their staffing firms a set of ethics, standards, and values that are similar to their own.  These include; (1) delivering the services promised in the initial stages, (2) providing accurate and reliable information requested by a client, (3) rectifying problems to the satisfaction of the client, and (4) standing by a client to meet their overall objectives in staffing – from the most basic of direct hire placements to the most demanding long-term, high volume temporary projects.

Our clients consistently tell us that we understand their needs and deliver the service they expect. We do not put our emphasis on marketing hype and promises.  Our job is to match employers with employees to form successful work relationships.  This can only be accomplished through accurately assessing and considering the needs of the parties involved and finding the balance.  This sensitivity to the placement process is key to our success.  It is an uncompromising commitment to the people and companies we represent.

 

Matura Farrington Staffing Services is proud to be a member of the American Staffing Association since 1999.

The American Staffing Association is the voice of the U.S. staffing industry. Along with its affiliated chapters, ASA promotes the interests of the industry through legal and legislative advocacy, public relations, education, and the establishment of high standards of ethical conduct.

The American Staffing Association Code of Ethics and Good Practices

As a condition of membership in the American Staffing Association, each member pledges its support of, and adherence to, the principles and practices set forth below. ASA members acknowledge that such compliance is in the best interests of the staffing services industry, its clients, and its employees. ASA members agree to always strive

  • To comply with all laws and regulations applicable to their business, and to maintain high standards of ethical conduct in the operation of that business and in their dealings with employees, clients, and competitors.
  • To treat all applicants and employees with dignity and respect, and to provide equal employment opportunities, based on bona fide job qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or any basis prohibited by applicable law.
  • To maintain high standards of integrity in all advertising, and to assign the best qualified employees to fill a client’s needs.
  • To determine the experience and qualifications of applicants and employees as the staffing firm deems appropriate to the circumstances, or as may be required by law.
  • To explain to employees prior to assignment their wage rate, applicable benefits, hours of work, and other assignment conditions, and to promptly pay any wages and benefits due in accordance with the terms of their employment and applicable legal requirements.
  • To encourage employee efforts to upgrade their skills.
  • To satisfy all applicable employer obligations, including payment of the employer’s share of social security, state and federal unemployment insurance taxes, and workers’ compensation and to explain to employees that the staffing firm is responsible for such obligations.
  • To ascertain that employees are assigned to work sites that are safe, that they understand the nature of the work the client has called for and can perform such work without injury to themselves or others, and that they receive any personal safety training and equipment that may be required.
  • To take prompt action to address employee questions, concerns, or complaints regarding unsafe work conditions, discrimination, or any other matter involving the terms and conditions of their employment.
  • To confirm their temporary employees’ periods of service upon request by a subsequent employer and with the consent of the employee.
  • To observe the following guidelines to ensure an orderly transition when taking over an account being serviced by another staffing firm:
  • The outgoing firm and its employees should, whenever feasible, be given reasonable prior notice that the account is being transferred.
  • Assigned employees of the outgoing firm should, whenever feasible, be allowed to continue working on the payroll of the outgoing firm for some reasonable transition period; thereafter, they should be given the choice of accepting an assignment with another client of the outgoing firm if one is available, or applying to stay on their current assignment with the new staffing firm.

These guidelines are subject to enforceable contracts between staffing firms and their clients, employees, and other parties, and are not intended to prohibit or discourage any other provisions or arrangements, agreeable to the parties, that achieve an orderly transfer of accounts. ASA members are encouraged, whenever feasible, to specifically address the terms and conditions relating to the transfer of accounts in written agreements with their clients.
