Businesses seeking to hire new employees should consult with the employment agency, the Associated Press reports.
The employment agency has a contract that sets out the terms of employment for employees who want to work at a given employer, and the contracts are binding, the AP says.
Employers can request that the employment bureau fill out forms for prospective hires, and employers are also encouraged to provide employees with written employment contract templates, the news service adds.
But it is not required that the template include any employment law clauses or that employees receive compensation.
The contract templates are used to help employers hire and retain new employees, and they also have the added benefit of allowing employers to determine the length of employment contracts, the agency says.
According to a 2014 report by the National Employment Law Project, employers hired more than 5 million temporary workers and employed them for more than 8.3 million hours in 2015, the most recent year for which data was available.
Employment agencies are often the gatekeepers of employment in the United States, and many are now using technology to help recruit and retain more than 4 million new workers each year.
The Associated Press does not typically identify companies or jobs that are at risk for automation.
