NJ Settles With Unregistered Temp Firm

The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has announced a $27,800 settlement with a staffing provider that set up offices in New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy, without properly registering with the state.

Idaho-based Command Center, Inc. will have to pay $10,000 to the American Red Cross, along with penalties and reimbursement for the Division’s investigative costs.

Command Center reportedly operated in Newark and Paterson from approximately November 2012 until mid-March 2013, engaging local residents to perform post-Sandy cleanup jobs for third-party employers.

“We continue to work tirelessly to ensure that any out-of-state company seeking to do business here, from home improvement contractors to temp firms, will comply with New Jersey’s laws or face significant penalties,” said Acting Attorney General John Hoffman.

A separate settlement was previously reached between Command Center and the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The company paid more than $2,844 in back wages to 13 temporary employees in New Jersey.

Command Center has ceased operation as a temporary help service in the Garden State.
