MEDICAL LEAVE BILL COMES AT INCONVENIENT TIME FOR BUSINESS, SAYS TEMPEXCHANGE PRESIDENT

 BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The timing of the Family and Medical Leave Act is inconvenient for the small-business community, according to Jeff Chaffin, president of TempExchange, Inc.
 Companies are downsizing, cutting staff and moving toward lean operations, said Chaffin, on the board of the Michigan Association of Temporary Services, so every single employee becomes a key person. "Under these conditions, this bill has big implications."
 A company's or department's continuity is interrupted when a person leaves, even temporarily. If a replacement is transferred from another department, in a larger company, then two departments are affected.
 For the employees, however, the bill eases some of the stress associated with changes in their lives. "Job and home are the two major components in a person's life," Chaffin said. "When there's stress in one, the other can become stressful as well. Knowing they will return to their old jobs when the crisis is over relieves a lot of the anxiety."
 The question for the employer becomes, how do we get through these periods when there is a gap in the employment force -- yet, still maintain the level of service, quality and productivity clients have come to expect.
 The obvious answer is a temporary service firm, such as TempExchange. "The temporary help firm is prepared to react quickly and effectively, yet is flexible," Chaffin said. "Flexibility is important when an employee will be out an indeterminate period of time -- from three weeks to three months."
 The advantage of a good temporary service firm is that the replacement employees it provides already meet all the qualifications the employer seeks. The temp is experienced, pre-qualified and prepared to hit the ground running when he or she walks into the employer's office. "This makes for smoother operations."
 "Without a doubt," Chaffin said, "with a wide variety of employer needs, a temporary personnel firm is a perfect fit for the holes sure to be created by the Family and Medical Leave Act."
 Founded in 1988, TempExchange provides temporary staffing to businesses of all sizes in southeastern Michigan through offices in Bloomfield Hills, Clinton Township and Southfield.
