Wha to do if a company is not paying for our services?

As a subcontractor we are waiting for some pending payments from a company. This company no longer responds to our emails or calls. The actual client for whom the services were performed by our employee, paid this company. The client has stopped doing business with this shady company because of similar complaints from other subcontractors. How can we send a legal notice / collection notice to this company without spending a lot of money? How to make sure this shady company cannot do business again? They have offshore branch in other country where all of its employees work.

Before beginning any litigation, have an attorney send a demand letter for payment. This often gets their attention. If that doesn’t work, you may consider filing a lawsuit in magistrate court if the amount is $15,000.00 or less.

 

You have no guaranteed way to stop the company from doing business. Of course, you can not recommend them, give them bad reviews, etc.
