AGENCY EXECS SHARE BEST PRACTICES IN HIRING JOB CANDIDATES

  • A trio of industry experts held a very interesting discussion last week during a webinar sponsored by Peak Revenue Learning. The topic was on how different agencies go about the process of hiring job candidates. The topics of discussion ranged from the use of personality testing during the screening and interviewing process to whether it is a good idea to hire candidates with previous job experience. More information from the discussion, and a link to download a recording of the webinar, are available here.

 

COLLECTION AGENCY GETS SANDERS CAMPAIGN TO PAY OUTSTANDING BILL

  • A California city had to get a collection agency involved to receive payment on a $28,000 invoice from the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sen. Sanders held a rally in National City, Calif., last year, and the city spent $28,000 on police and public works to staff the event. Only after being threatened with a lawsuit by a collection agency did the Sanders campaign finally pay the bill.

 

BANKRUPTCY FILINGS CONTINUE TO DECLINE

  • The total number of bankruptcy filings in September was 7% lower than the same month a year ago, according to data released by the American Bankruptcy Institute. The group cited high filing costs as the likely reason for the continued decline in filings. Overall, the total number of filings through the first nine months of 2017 is 1% lower than the same period from last year.

 

JUDGE IN CFPB CASE AGAINST WELTMAN DENIES MOTION TO DISMISS

  • A federal judge in Ohio has denied a motion from Weltman, Weinberg & Reis to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the firm by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The law firm had argued that the accusations leveled by the CFPB are voided because they have exceeded the statute of limitations. The judge dismissed the notion, saying that the federal agency has successfully made its case alleging that the law firm had misrepresented the level of attorney involvement in reviewing accounts prior to filing lawsuits to collect unpaid debts.
