It's one of the most important concepts in bankruptcy—but it's also one of the most misunderstood.

Most creditors have heard of "the automatic stay" and that it prohibits a creditor from "doing anything to collect," but myths about what it really prohibits—and even about when it begins and ends—abound. Those misunderstandings can result in sanctions for those who err in one direction, and lost opportunities to collect for those who err in the other direction!

It is essential that those who routinely collect consumer debts have a strong understanding of the automatic stay. Those in management who are responsible for oversight of the collections department must also understand the rule well enough to perform their supervisory role. In fact, anyone who may interact with a borrower who has filed bankruptcy should have at least a basic understanding of the rule.

During this program, participants learn about issues including:

The automatic stay is perhaps the most important bankruptcy-related rule for collectors and those who supervise them to understand. Join collections, compliance and management professionals from across the country for this program to learn how to best protect your financial institution!
