Negotiate MSP Agreements Like a Pro
Recorded On: 05/05/2022
This is the recording of the 2022 ASA Staffing Law Conference session: Negotiate MSP Agreements Like a Pro
For years, many staffing clients have turned to managed service provider (MSP) arrangements to achieve what they expect to be greater efficiency in the delivery of staffing services. This relationship can be problematic as firms lose their direct relationship with the client, see their profits squeezed, and are pressured to comply with inequitable indemnification language and other terms. Learn from our legal experts how to negotiate these agreements, which redlines to insist on, and how to protect your business.
