Legal responsibilities of privately owned third party recruiting company?

Anonymous - January 1, 1970
Back to Ask the Experts

Hi there – I own a small private recruiting company, where we are contracted on a contingency fee arrangement, to help medical companies find employees. We are paid on a deal by deal basis, only if the potential candidate is chosen and hired and starts working. My question is: What are my firms legal obligations with regard to the new CA pay transparency act and any diversity/race/gender/ethnicity reporting? I was always under the impression that this is the burdon of the hiring company, not the third party recruiter who is submitting many many potential resumes for consideration. A long time client is asking me to sign a new 13 page contingency agreement which includes all sorts of collection/documentation/reporting obligations. I feel like this is not my obligation but they disagree and are telling me I’m not “in the know” legally. Any thoughts/facts would be appreciated. I’m inc. in Ca and so are they. Thank you! Kim
