Linium Recruiting Launches Rapid Response Team to Help Companies Address the Impact of New York’s Paid Family Leave Program



Linium Recruiting, the Capital Region’s leading recruiter for professional and technology positions, today announced the launch of a Rapid Response Team dedicated to helping employers secure temporary employees – critical to keeping their businesses operating and growing – amid the start of the New York State Paid Family Leave Program.

As of January 1, 2018, virtually every full- or part-time private employee in New York is eligible for Paid Family Leave, whether to bond with a child, care for a close relative with a serious health condition, or help relieve family pressures when someone is called to active military service. Eligible employees are guaranteed paid time off for 8 weeks; job protection upon return from Paid Family Leave; and continuation of health insurance while out on Paid Family Leave.

Linium Recruiting’s Rapid Response Team is specifically tailored to assist employers in securing temporary employees to fill in for those who utilize Paid Family Leave. The team is comprised of designated personnel who are knowledgeable about the new law and empowered to act quickly and decisively on behalf of employers. It enables access to a robust pipeline of candidates – including a “Hot List” of more than 500 that are pre-screened, skills-tested, and reference-checked – to expedite the process of finding and placing qualified temporary employees. And, it dedicates resources to accelerate connections between employers and temporary workers.

“As companies support the needs of their employees to care for loved ones at home, it is vital that employers are able to maintain operations and grow their businesses,” said Miriam Dushane, Managing Director, Upstate New York for Linium Recruiting. “With the launch of our Rapid Response Team, Linium Recruiting is committed to ensuring that companies have access to qualified and skilled temporary employees to remain productive and profitable.”

Employers may reach Linium Recruiting’s Rapid Response Team through a special hotline at (518) 591-4747, via email at [email protected], or by visiting the company’s website at www.liniumrecruiting.com.

Linium Recruiting is recognized as one of the best recruiting firms in the nation, named by Forbes to its list of America's Best Recruiting Firms 2017. Prior to that, it received the prestigious Inavero's Best of Staffing® Client Award for providing superior service to its clients.

From 1883 to 2018 the means of drilling and blasting has changed, but the process has remained consistent; and so has the uniqueness of the Callanan family operation. It’s what has led employees to stay with the company for 30 years or more. With a woman at the helm of the most formative years of the company—something unheard of at the time—an…
