SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TeamStaff, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSTF) a national provider of healthcare and administrative staffing services, today announced that it had received a letter of reprimand from Nasdaq concerning the membership of the Company's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
The Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4350(c)(4)(A) requires that all nominees for director be either recommended or selected by a majority of independent directors or by a Committee comprised solely of independent directors. The nominees for director were recommended by the Company's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. However, since one of the members of the Committee was previously employed by the Company within three years, the Committee was not composed entirely of "independent" directors as defined in Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4200(a)(15).
Upon receiving notice of the violation, the Company took immediate corrective action. The Company noted the violation was inadvertent and the Company's Board of Directors consists of a majority of independent directors.
