The following types of business do not require an Employment Agency license:
- Temporary Employment Agencies: Agencies that contract out their employees to do work at other firms. However, workers are paid and receive a W-2 form from the temporary employment agency at the end of the year.
- Theatrical Personal Managers: Businesses that primarily manage artists. Note that if the primary business is finding employment or engagements for artists for a fee, then the business is a “theatrical employment agency” and an employment agency license is required.
- Certain Executive Search Firm and Employer Fee-Paid Agencies: Agencies that place applicants in commercial, clerical, executive, administrative, or professional positions without charging the applicant a fee of any kind. Businesses that fit this category do not need a license, but must comply with all sections of the Employment Agency Law relating to Employer Fee Paid Agencies.
