  1. Security and Issuer.
  2. This Statement on Schedule 13D (this "Statement") relates to the Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share ("Common Stock"), of TeamStaff, Inc., a New Jersey corporation (the "Issuer"). The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 300 Atrium Drive, Somerset, New Jersey 08873.

  3. Identity and Background.
  4. This Statement is filed by Wachovia Corporation, a North Carolina corporation ("Wachovia"), Wachovia Private Capital, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation ("Wachovia Private Capital") and Wachovia Bank, National Association ("Wachovia Bank"). Wachovia, Wachovia Private Capital and Wachovia Bank are collectively referred to herein as the "Reporting Persons." Wachovia is a registered financial services holding company. Wachovia Private Capital is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wachovia and invests in publicly traded securities and private equity. Wachovia Bank is a national banking association and a wholly owned subsidiary of Wachovia. The address and the principal place of business of Wachovia and Wachovia Bank is One Wachovia Center, Charlotte, North Carolina 28288. The address of the principal business and principal office of Wachovia Private Capital is 301 South College Street, NC 0009, Suite 4000, Charlotte, North Carolina 28288.

    Certain information regarding the Reporting Persons' directors and executive officers is set forth in Exhibit 99.1 hereto, which is incorporated by reference herein. All of the individuals listed in Exhibit 99.1 are citizens of the United States, except for Robert P. Kelly, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Executive Vice President of Wachovia and Wachovia Bank, who is a citizen of Canada.

    During the last five years, none of the Reporting Persons or any of the individuals listed in Exhibit 99.1 has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), or has been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction as a result of which any of them was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

  5. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
  6. Wachovia does not directly own any shares of Common Stock but owns 100% of the equity in both Wachovia Private Capital and Wachovia Bank. Of the 3,335,545 shares of Common Stock reported as beneficially owned by Wachovia, 3,334,117 were acquired by Wachovia Private Capital in August 2001 as a result of the merger (the "Merger") of Brightlane.com, Inc., a Georgia corporation ("Brightlane") with TeamSub, Inc., a Georgia corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Issuer ("TeamSub"). An additional 1,428 shares of Common Stock are held by Wachovia Bank in a fiduciary capacity.

     

    The 3,334,117 shares of Common Stock reported as beneficially owned by Wachovia Private Capital were acquired by Wachovia Private Capital in August 2001 as a result of the Merger described above. Prior to the Merger, Wachovia Private Capital owned 1,717,385 shares of Series B Preferred Stock of Brightlane (the "Brightlane Preferred Stock"). The Brightlane Preferred Stock was exchanged for 3,334,117 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of March 6, 2001 (the "Merger Agreement") by and among the Issuer, TeamSub, and Brightlane. Wachovia Private Capital initially acquired the Brightlane Preferred Stock in exchange for a capital contribution in Brightlane in the amount of $19,500,000. Working capital was used by Wachovia Private Capital to fund such purchase.

    The 1,428 shares of Common Stock reported as beneficially owned by Wachovia Bank were not purchased directly by Wachovia Bank for its own account but are held by Wachovia Bank in a fiduciary capacity. Other persons have the right to receive dividends with respect to the shares of Common Stock held by Wachovia and may have the right to direct the sale of such shares.

  7. Purpose of Transaction.
  8. Wachovia Private Capital holds its shares of Common Stock for general investment purposes. Wachovia Bank holds the shares of Common Stock reported as beneficially owned in a fiduciary capacity. Other persons have the right to receive dividends with respect to the shares of Common Stock held by Wachovia Bank and may have the right to direct the sale of such shares.

    The Reporting Persons or affiliates of the Reporting Persons, may from time to time acquire additional shares of Common Stock in open market or negotiated block transactions, consistent with their investment purposes. Additionally, Wachovia Private Capital may from time to time sell its shares of Common Stock in open market transactions or in negotiated block sales to one or more purchasers, consistent with its investment purpose. However, none of the Reporting Persons currently have plans to purchase additional shares of Common Stock or plans or proposals which relate to, or would result in (i) the acquisition of additional securities of the Issuer or the disposition of securities of the Issuer, (ii) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, (iii) the sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or of any of its subsidiaries, (iv) any change in the present board of directors or management of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of directors, or to fill any existing vacancies on the board, (v) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer, (vi) any other material change in the Issuer's business or corporate structure, (vii) changes in the Issuer's charter, bylaws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person, (viii) causing a class of the Issuer's securities to be delisted from a national securities exchange or to cease to be authorized to be quoted in any inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association, (ix) a class of the Issuer's equity securities becoming eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or (x) any action similar to any of those enumerated above.

  9. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
    1. Wachovia may be deemed to beneficially own 3,335,545 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 20.6 percent of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer. Wachovia Private Capital may be deemed to beneficially own 3,334,117 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 20.6 percent of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer. Wachovia Bank may be deemed to beneficially own 1,428 shares of Common Stock or less than one percent of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer. These calculations of percentage ownership are based on 16,221,953 shares of Common Stock outstanding as reported in the Issuer's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2002.
    2. To each of the Reporting Person's knowledge, none of the individuals listed in Exhibit 99.1 beneficially owns any shares of Common Stock.

    3. The following table sets forth, with respect to each Reporting Person, the number of shares of Common Stock as to which such Reporting Person has sole power to vote or direct the vote, shared power to vote or direct the vote, sole power to dispose or direct the disposition, or shared power to dispose or direct the disposition:

    6. Wachovia Bank holds 1,428 shares of Common Stock in a fiduciary capacity. Of these shares, the Bank has sole voting power with respect to 1,428 shares and shared dispositive power with respect to 1,428 shares. Other persons have the right to receive, or the power to direct the receipt of, dividends from such shares or the proceeds from the sale of such shares.
    7. Not applicable.

  10. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.
  11. The information set forth in Item 4 and 5 of this Amendment is incorporated herein by reference.

    As a condition to the Merger, Wachovia Private Capital entered into a Lockup Agreement dated August 31, 2001 which restricts its ability to offer, sell, pledge, hypothecate, grant an option for sale, or otherwise dispose of, or transfer, or grant any rights with respect to, the Common Stock, or to enter into any swap agreement or other agreement or transaction that transfers the economic consequences of ownership of the Common Stock. Under the terms of this Lockup Agreement, 50% of the Common Stock held by Wachovia Private Capital may be transferred, or otherwise disposed of, after August 31, 2002 and the remaining 50% may be transferred, or otherwise disposed of, after August 31, 2003. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Lockup Agreement also provides that Wachovia Private Capital may transfer its Common Stock in a private transaction at any time, provided the acquiror agrees to be bound by the terms of the Lockup Agreement.

    As a further condition to the Merger, Wachovia Private Capital and certain other shareholders of Brightlane agreed to place approximately 150,000 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer received by such shareholders as consideration in the Merger in escrow pending settlement of certain claims by third parties against Brightlane. Wachovia Private Capital is deemed to beneficially own 65,309 of these escrowed shares. While such shares are in escrow, Wachovia Private Capital may not sell, pledge, assign or otherwise transfer such shares. However, Wachovia Private Capital does have the sole power to vote such shares.

    Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, two directors on the original Board of Directors of the Issuer following the Merger were nominated by Wachovia Private Capital. One Wachovia Private Capital nominee, David M. Carroll, resigned from the Board of Directors of the Issuer effective April 24, 2002. Although the Merger Agreement provides that Wachovia Private Capital has the right to nominate a replacement for Mr. Carroll until the expiration of his term in 2004, Wachovia Private Capital expressly waived this right in a Proxy Agreement between Wachovia Private Capital and the Issuer dated as of April 23, 2002 (the "Proxy Agreement"). The second Wachovia Private Capital nominee, Donald MacLeod, was recently elected by the shareholders of the Issuer to a second term as director of the Issuer. However, he has resigned from this position and Wachovia Private Capital no longer has rights to unilaterally appoint his successor.

    Pursuant to the Proxy Agreement described above, Wachovia Private Capital granted the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Issuer an irrevocable proxy to vote and to exercise all voting and related rights related to certain shares of Common Stock of the Issuer held by Wachovia Private Capital so that in no event shall Wachovia Private Capital and its affiliates be able to vote more than 19% of the total outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Proxy Agreement, Wachovia Private Capital waived any and all rights to fill the vacancy on the Board of Directors of the Issuer created by the resignation of Wachovia Private Capital's nominee, David M. Carroll.

The following will be filed as exhibits hereto:

1.

Information regarding the directors and executive officers of Wachovia Corporation, Wachovia Private Capital, Inc. and Wachovia Bank, National Association.

2.

    4. Escrow Period. The Escrow Shares shall be held for the earlier of (a) a period of one year from the date hereof or (b) until such time as there are no longer any Escrow Shares being held in escrow, as provided in Section 6 hereof ("Escrow Period").
    5. Dividends/Distributions on Escrow Shares. During the Escrow Period that the Escrow Shares are held by the Escrow Agent, the parties hereby agree and acknowledge that the BrightLane Shareholders shall be entitled to vote the Escrow Shares in any matter submitted for shareholder approval by notifying the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent and shall promptly receive any and all dividends or distributions of any kind with respect to the Escrow Shares. The Escrow Agent shall deliver to the BrightLane Shareholders any distributions or dividends declared on the Escrow Shares as the Escrow Agent may be instructed in writing by the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent. While the Escrow Shares remain in the Escrow Agent's possession pursuant to this Agreement and the Merger Agreement, the BrightLane Shareholders will retain and will be able to exercise all other incidents of ownership of said Escrow Shares which are not inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Merger Agreement.
    6. Release of Escrow Shares; Termination of Escrow.
      1. At the times provided for in Section 6(c), the Escrow Shares shall be released to the BrightLane Shareholders pro rata in proportion to the total aggregate number of TeamStaff Shares received in the Merger by each unless the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent shall have instructed the Escrow Agent otherwise in writing, in which case the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to rely upon such instructions. TeamStaff and the Escrow Agent will take such action as may be necessary to cause such certificates to be transferred to and issued in the names of the appropriate persons. Certificates representing Escrow Shares so issued that are subject to resale restrictions under applicable securities laws will bear a legend to that effect. No fractional shares shall be released and delivered to the BrightLane Shareholders; provided, however, that if the Escrow Agent is required to release less than all of the Escrowed Shares, the Escrow Agent will release to each BrightLane Shareholder that number of shares to which each said BrightLane Shareholder is entitled rounded down to the nearest whole share, and the Escrow Agent shall retain the balance. Cash will be paid in lieu of fractions of Escrow Shares in an amount equal to the product determined by multiplying such fraction by the then-current Fair Market Value (as determined in accordance with the Merger Agreement) of the Escrow Shares. Within five (5) business days after written request from the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent, TeamStaff will deposit with the Escrow Agent sufficient funds to pay such cash amounts for fractional shares.
      2. No Escrow Shares or any beneficial interest therein may be pledged, sold, assigned or transferred, including by operation of law, by any BrightLane Shareholder or be taken or reached by any legal or equitable process in satisfaction of any debt or other liability of any such shareholder, prior to the delivery to such BrightLane Shareholder of its or his pro rata portion of the Escrow Shares by the Escrow Agent as provided herein.
      3. As soon as practicable following expiration of the Escrow Period (the "Release Date"), the Escrow Shares will be released from the Escrow to the BrightLane Shareholders less the number of Escrow Shares, if any, with a Fair Market Value (as determined in accordance with the Merger Agreement) equal to the amount of Adverse Consequences set forth in any Indemnification Notice from TeamStaff with respect to any pending but unresolved claim for indemnification which Indemnification Note has been delivered by TeamStaff to the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent under Section 9 of the Merger Agreement. Any Escrow Shares retained in the Escrow as a result of the immediately preceding sentence shall be released to the BrightLane Shareholders or TeamStaff, as appropriate, promptly upon resolution of the related claim for indemnification in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 of the Merger Agreement.
      4. The Escrow Shares held in escrow shall be released by the Escrow Agent only upon the Escrow Agent's receipt of written instructions executed by both TeamStaff and the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent, which instructions shall state that the number of Escrow Shares as set forth in the instructions may be released from Escrow and delivered to either TeamStaff or the BrightLane Shareholders, as the case may be. The instructions shall be in the form of Exhibit B annexed hereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that TeamStaff has not delivered a notice to the Escrow Agent and the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent prior to the expiration of the Escrow Period stating that TeamStaff has a claim for indemnification under Section 9 of the Merger Agreement and that some or all of the Escrow Shares may not be released, the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent may send written notice to the Escrow Agent (with a copy delivered to TeamStaff) to release the Escrow Shares and the Escrow Shares shall be automatically released from Escrow to the BrightLane Shareholders as soon as practicable following termination of such Escrow Period.
      5. Counsel to TeamStaff shall provide the Escrow Agent with an opinion of counsel regarding any legend requirements on the Escrow Shares prior to release of the Escrow Shares.

    7. Limitation of Escrow Agent Liability and Indemnity.
      1. The Escrow Agent shall be obligated only for the performance of such duties as are expressly set forth herein and may rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting on any written instructions believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties and may reasonably assume that any person purporting to give notice or receipt of advice or make any statement or execute any document in connection with the provisions hereof has been duly authorized to do so. The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted by it except for breach of the terms or conditions of this Agreement and for its own bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct. The parties hereto agree that the Escrow Agent is an agent and shall have no fiduciary duties or liabilities as a fiduciary hereunder. The Escrow Agent may consult with counsel of its own choice and shall have full and complete authorization and protection for any action taken or suffered by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with the opinion of such counsel.
      2. The Escrow Agent shall have no liability for loss arising from any cause beyond its control, including (but not limited to) the following: (i) the act, failure or gross negligence of any agent or correspondent selected without gross negligence by the Escrow Agent for the remittance of the Escrow Shares; (ii) any delay, error, omission or default of any mail, telegraph, cable or wireless agency or operator; or (iii) the acts or edicts of any government or governmental agency.
      3. Each of TeamStaff and BrightLane hereby agrees to fully indemnify the Escrow Agent for, and to hold it harmless against, any loss, liability, tax or expense incurred without gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the Escrow Agent, arising out of or in connection with its entering into this Agreement and carrying out its duties hereunder, including the legal costs and expenses of defending itself against any claim or liability. Should the Escrow Agent become involved in litigation in any manner whatsoever on account of this Agreement due to a reason other than the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the Escrow Agent, each of TeamStaff on one hand, and BrightLane on the other hand, hereby agrees to pay the Escrow Agent, in addition to any charges made hereunder for acting as Escrow Agent, one-half of reasonable attorney's fees and expenses incurred by the Escrow Agent, and any other reasonable disbursements, expenses, losses, costs and damages in connection with and resulting from such actions.
      4. The BrightLane Shareholders hereby acknowledge that Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company serves as stock transfer agent to TeamStaff and it shall have the right and option to continue to serve as stock transfer agent to TeamStaff in the event that a dispute shall arise with respect to this Agreement and/or the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated herein or therein.
      5. Should any controversy arise between the parties hereto with respect to this Agreement or if the Escrow Agent is called upon to take any other action other than as provided for in this Agreement, before taking such action, the Escrow Agent shall require written instructions signed by the BrightLane Shareholders' Agent and TeamStaff instructing the Escrow Agent to take such actions or, in the event the Escrow Agent fails to receive written instructions, may require a judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction directing the Escrow Agent to take such action, and in any event the Escrow Agent will only be required to use good faith in determining what its action shall be.
