Webinar: Maurice Wutscher’s Brent Yarborough to Discuss Vicarious Liability in Debt Collections

Brent Yarborough

June 21, 2021 — Maurice Wutscher attorney Brent Yarborough will discuss vicarious liability in debt collections during a webinar Thursday, June 24 at 1 pm ET.

A ruling in a recent court case has partially held a debt buyer liable for the actions of the collector working its accounts, creating a new series of concerns for the accounts receivable management industry. Companies are required to monitor how collectors are working their accounts, but now may be held liable when collectors do or say something they shouldn’t.

In this webinar, the panel will discuss the ruling and the concept of vicarious liability in the ARM industry.
