Wake up. Apply to countless jobs.
Get a call back for maybe one of those job applications.
Receive a rejection email weeks later.
Go to bed stressed out and uncertain about your future.

On this day in 1865--over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation--enslaved African Americans in Galveston Bay, Texas were finally notified of their freedom.

This holiday celebrates the end of chattel slavery in the US and this year a number of companies, including Twitter and Target, have declared it a paid company holiday.

Happy Juneteenth!

Useful Staffing encourages all HR professionals to realize the position they are in and the actions they can take in fight for racial equity. To quote an article from Fast Company:

"The field of HR is uniquely positioned to undo some of the systemic inequities that have been embedded in the workplace for generations. Despite this, the track record of HR departments driving social change and equity has been less than stellar, known more for protecting companies over employees and letting bad behaviors go unchecked. Could the significance of this moment lead to a different outcome?"

Could the significance of this moment lead to a different outcome? We hope so.

Missing your stimulus check (Economic Impact Payment)? If you are sure that you should be receiving one but haven't yet, consider the following.

1. You have yet to set up direct deposit with the IRS. A paper check will take much longer to reach you than a digital payment. If you have yet to set up direct deposit with the IRS, do so now: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.

2. You haven't filed your taxes for 2018 or 2019. If you did not file for either of these years but qualify for the check, you will need to complete a form located on the IRS website. Follow these directions: https://www.irs.gov/coro…/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here...

Before the international and national declarations, local governments had declared their own state of emergencies due to the spread of coronavirus. With that, large gatherings have been postponed or cancelled, schools closed, and messages on washing hands and quarantining oneself as necessary emphasized.

But what about going to work? Workplaces are particularly good environments for spreading disease, as people remain in close proximity to eac...
