The recruitment sector is particularly vulnerable to the financial risk posed by bad debt and late paying clients. Debenhams Ottaway, a leading Hertfordshire law firm and REC Business Partner has developed a new debt recovery product for the recruitment sector. Debt Fast allows recruitment businesses to recover undisputed debt for fixed, often recoverable, cost.

Where a claim is defended and allocated to the small claims track, capped costs on a sliding scale ensures that recruitment businesses can run a case to trial with the assistance of expert lawyers whilst keeping the costs proportionate to the sums involved. Debenhams Ottaway has significant experience of the following types of recruitment disputes:

  • perm fee claims including “back door” engagements and suitability disputes
  • temp to perm/transfer fee claims
  • contactor extension fees
  • executive search claims
  • temp fee claims including suitability, negligence, vetting, rates and timesheet disputes.
