Chasing Payments for Short-Term Staffing Projects

Chasing payments for short-term staffing projects can be a challenging task, especially when dealing with delinquent clients. Having a structured recovery system in place can greatly improve the chances of recovering company funds efficiently. In this article, we will explore a three-phase Recovery System designed to assist companies in recovering outstanding payments for short-term staffing projects.

Key Takeaways

  • Implementing a structured recovery system can improve the efficiency of recovering company funds from delinquent clients.
  • Phase One of the Recovery System involves sending letters to debtors, skip-tracing, and attempting to contact debtors for resolution within the first 24 hours.
  • Phase Two of the Recovery System includes forwarding the case to affiliated attorneys for legal actions if initial attempts to resolve the account fail.
  • Phase Three provides recommendations for further actions, including closure of the case or proceeding with litigation.
  • Rates for recovery services vary based on the number of claims submitted and the age and amount of the accounts.

Recovery System for Company Funds

Phase One

Within the first 24 hours of initiating Phase One, a multi-pronged approach is set in motion to recover company funds. Immediate action is taken to ensure that the debtor is aware of the outstanding debt and the urgency of resolution. A series of four letters is dispatched via US Mail as a formal notice.

Skip-tracing and investigative measures are employed to gather the most current financial and contact information. Our collectors engage in persistent attempts to reach a resolution through various communication channels, including phone calls, emails, text messages, and faxes.

Daily contact attempts are standard during the initial 30 to 60 days. Should these efforts not yield the desired outcome, the process seamlessly transitions to Phase Two, involving legal escalation.

The effectiveness of Phase One is critical to setting the tone for the recovery process. It is designed to prompt a swift response and lay the groundwork for subsequent actions if necessary.

Phase Two

Upon escalation to Phase Two, the case is transferred to a local attorney within our network, initiating a more formal collection process. The attorney’s actions include:

  • Drafting and sending a series of authoritative letters on law firm letterhead, demanding payment.
  • Persistent attempts to contact the debtor through phone calls, aiming to secure a resolution.

If these efforts do not yield results, a detailed report is prepared, outlining the challenges encountered and recommending potential next steps. This report is critical in deciding whether to proceed to Phase Three.

The transition to Phase Two signifies a shift in strategy, from internal collection efforts to legal enforcement.

The costs associated with this phase are transparent and communicated upfront, ensuring no hidden fees surprise you later in the process.

Phase Three

Upon reaching Phase Three, the path forward hinges on the feasibility of recovery. If prospects are dim, we advise case closure, sparing you further costs. Conversely, opting for litigation necessitates upfront legal fees, typically between $600 to $700. These cover court costs and filing fees, with our affiliated attorney initiating the lawsuit for the full amount due.

Should litigation prove unsuccessful, rest assured, you owe nothing further to our firm or attorney.

Our fee structure is straightforward and competitive, with rates varying based on claim age, amount, and volume. Here’s a snapshot:

Claims Submitted Accounts < 1 Year Accounts > 1 Year Accounts < $1000 Attorney Placed
1-9 30% 40% 50% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40% 50%

In the event of non-litigation, you may withdraw the claim or allow continued pursuit through standard collection activities such as calls and emails. The choice is yours, with transparency and control at the forefront of our recovery system.
