Recruitment Case Studies

Are you in the recruitment industry? We have put together a selection of case studies from clients we have helped within the recruitment industry.

Recruitment Care Industry

Recruitment (Care Industry)

Debt: £25,000

Challenge: Our client provided temporary recruitment placements for the care sector. The debtor had stopped paying for the weekly staff provided and over a period of 4 months, the debt had increased to £25,000

Solution: Initially, the debtor refused to engage. However, it was clear they were still trading and receiving payments from the local authority, for the care given by the staff our client had provided. Following a letter before claim, we managed to agree an instalment arrangement based on the payments due to be received. Whilst £10,000 was paid, the debtor missed payments for 1 – 2 months and stopped engaging. A statutory demand was issued for service of a winding up petition.

Result: To avoid the company being wound up, the debtor paid the remaining balance over 2 months to include all costs and interest. Total of £38,000 collected.

Recruitment Agency

Recruitment Agency

Debt: £5,500

Challenge: Our client provided temporary and permanent recruitment placements. The debtor had initially taken a temporary placement and the weekly recruitment fees were paid. After 2 months, the member of staff was made permanent, but the debtor refused to pay the permanent placement fee, in accordance with terms and conditions.

Solution: Initially, we received no engagement from the debtor. A letter before action issued and a response received from both the debtor and their lawyers, claiming to be unaware of the permanent placement fees. The contract was clear and evidenced to the debtor, who failed to respond. We then filed Court papers. 

Result: Following the filing of court papers, the debt was settled in full – £6,900 was received, which included all costs and interest, before the date for the hearing.

Recruitment Company Case Study

Recruitment Company

Debt: £6,000

Challenge: Our client provided permanent placements. They discovered that the debtor had taken on an employee and not advised our client. My Debt Recovery was instructed 5 months later.

Solution: The debtor initially denied liability and became hostile. On behalf of our client, we issued a Letter before Claim. A 6-week payment plan was agreed to recover the debt but payments were missed so we filed court papers. A Judgement was obtained and payments recommenced for the originally agreed term.

Result: Debt collected in full over 6 weeks, plus all costs and interest totalling £7,500.
