Description:

Members of the credit and collection industry face a variety of new challenges as they attempt to navigate the aggressive regulatory schemes created by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) among others.

The threat of civil investigations and enforcement actions have many companies in the accounts receivable industry updating their compliance management systems.

On top of these regulatory challenges, the plaintiff's bar has increasingly utilized the class action device to challenge wholesale company practices and engage in complex civil litigation under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).

This webinar analyzes the hot-button issues facing the accounts receivable management industry from both a compliance and litigation management perspective. The course focuses on popular individual and class action claims, as well as potential litigation strategies to reduce exposure. It also provides takeaways from regulatory activities involving the CFPB, OCC and FTC - including lessons learned to reduce the risk of an enforcement action going forward.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
