A temporary employee, employed and paid by a staffing firm, who fails, without good cause, to contact the staffing firm for reassignment will be deemed to have voluntarily left his employment and will be disqualified for unemployment compensation benefits. Act No. 381, signed by Governor Jindal on May 31, 2012, further provides that a temporary employee will not be deemed disqualified if he is not advised, at the time of hire, that he must report for reassignment upon conclusion of each assignment and that unemployment compensation benefits may be denied for failure to do so.
