Job Boards

A service segment of the Talent Acquisition Technology Industry. Job Boards are internet-based talent acquisition technologies that aggregate either local, national or international job offerings. In most instances, employers pay up-front to advertise these job offerings, which differs from the cost model of Employment Agencies that charge a fee only when a Candidate has been successfully placed. Job Boards sometimes refer to themselves as Job Portals or Career Portals. Newer variations on the traditional job board business model have more recently emerged such as those offered by social media giant LinkedIn, career communities, job aggregators (meta search job boards that aggregate job postings from other sites), and job distributors (platforms for hirers to advertise jobs on multiple syndicated Job Boards).

Job Order

Refers to a bona fide request to a staffing firm or employment agency to refer applicants for a specific position. A job order is the specific set of requirements set forth by an employer for an actual position.

Job Sharing

Joint Employment

A US legal term where two employers exercise significant and simultaneous control over the same employee. For example, when a temporary help or leasing firm exercises control over  personnel matters while the client company exercises supervisory and workplace control. Both employers may be liable for payment of taxes, workplace safety, etc. Such relationships are sometimes not thought to be “joint-employment” relationships, because the client company is indemnified from some liabilities; but because control is shared significantly between the general employer and the client workplace supervisor,these may be considered “co-employer” relationships as well. (See also: Co-employment, General Employer, Indemnification.) Joint Employment is understood within Europe to describe a situation where an individual has two employers that are separate entities, although such an arrangement is not common.

Just-in-Time Staffing (JITS)

A subset of online staffing platforms. JITS essentially comprises labor intermediaries that are web/smartphone-enabled and provide a staffing-like service for on-site, blue collar work. These companies are unique in that they combine the technology of more typical freelancer marketplaces (such as a two-sided digital labor marketplace, ratings system, and algorithmic recruiting, management, and matching) with services that are typical of a more “traditional” staffing firm, such as screening and recruiting. In the US, these companies act as the Employer of Record for the worker(s), either themselves (handling statutory employment taxes and workers’ compensation as a traditional staffing firm would) or via a payrolling firm. Outside the US, JITS firms typically operate under local temporary agency worker legislation. The work engagements via JITS are typically characterized by being very short-term in nature (i.e., hourly) and requests from clients are filled very quickly.
