Staffing Firms’ Lawsuit Thrown Out

A lawsuit filed by three South Dakota staffing companies concerning a $5 million state contract awarded to Manpower has been thrown out, according to an article by KELOLAND TV. The judge ruled the firms did not have enough of a case.

Careers Unlimited Staffing, Employment Edge of Sioux Falls and Reagan Enterprises of Watertown and Aberdeen objected to the multimillion dollar contract for Manpower to recruit 1,000 out-of-state workers to South Dakota, the article says. The firms also argued the governor’s office entered into a contract that gave one company an exclusive deal or monopoly in a private industry and that the state broke competitive bidding laws.
