WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Gain CLE and help clients manage business functions while staying compliant with the TPCA.
If you have clients that do telemarketing or debt collection via telephone, you are no doubt aware of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the law that restricts the making of telemarketing calls and the use of automatic telephone dialing systems and artificial or prerecorded voice messages.
Your clients face potentially hefty penalties for violations of the TCPA. Consumers may seek statutory damages ranging from $500 to $1,500 for each non-complying robocall or SMS message, with no cap on total damages.
So how should you advise clients, before they run afoul of the TCPA's many complex provisions? How can they work within the law's confines to execute essential business functions? What are the pitfalls that threaten the healthcare industry more than others?
