Confronting Delays in Payment for Contract Staffing Work

Delays in payment for contract staffing work can be a significant challenge for companies. To address this issue, a Recovery System for Company Funds has been developed, consisting of three phases. Each phase plays a crucial role in recovering funds owed to the company.

Key Takeaways

  • The Recovery System for Company Funds consists of three phases: Phase One, Phase Two, and Phase Three.
  • Phase One involves sending letters to debtors, skip-tracing, and attempting to contact debtors for resolution within 30 to 60 days.
  • Phase Two includes forwarding cases to affiliated attorneys for legal action and demanding payment from debtors.
  • Phase Three offers recommendations for either closing the case or proceeding with litigation, with associated legal costs and collection rates.
  • DCI provides competitive collection rates based on the number of claims submitted and the age of the accounts.

Recovery System for Company Funds

Phase One

Upon initiating Phase One, swift action is taken to signal the urgency of the situation to the debtor. Within 24 hours of account placement, a multi-channel communication strategy is deployed:

  • A series of four letters is dispatched via US Mail.
  • Comprehensive skip-tracing and investigation are conducted to secure optimal financial and contact data.
  • Persistent contact attempts are made through phone, email, text, and fax.

The goal is to establish a resolution swiftly, with daily contact efforts spanning the first 30 to 60 days. Should these efforts not yield a resolution, the process seamlessly transitions to Phase Two, involving our network of affiliated attorneys.

The effectiveness of Phase One hinges on the immediacy of these actions, setting the tone for the debtor that resolution is non-negotiable.

Phase Two

Upon escalation to Phase Two, the case is transferred to a local attorney within our network. This shift signifies a more formal approach to debt recovery. The attorney’s immediate actions include:

  • Drafting and sending a series of authoritative letters on law firm letterhead.
  • Initiating direct telephone contact with the debtor to demand payment.

This phase intensifies the pressure on the debtor, signaling the seriousness of the situation.

If these measures do not yield results, a detailed report is prepared for the client. This report outlines the challenges encountered and provides a clear recommendation for the subsequent phase. The decision to proceed further rests with the client, ensuring transparency and control remain paramount.

Phase Three

Upon reaching Phase Three, the path forward becomes clear. If the likelihood of fund recovery is low, we advise case closure, sparing you further costs. Conversely, should litigation be the recommended route, a decision point arises.

Litigation entails upfront legal fees, typically between $600 to $700, which cover court costs and filing fees. These expenses are necessary for our affiliated attorney to initiate legal proceedings on your behalf.

The goal is to recover all monies owed, including litigation costs. However, if litigation does not yield results, you owe nothing further.

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

  • For 1-9 claims:

    • Under 1 year: 30%
    • Over 1 year: 40%
    • Under $1000: 50%
    • With attorney: 50%
  • For 10+ claims:

    • Under 1 year: 27%
    • Over 1 year: 35%
    • Under $1000: 40%
    • With attorney: 50%

This tiered approach ensures that our services are tailored to your specific needs, providing a fair and effective resolution.
