Request a Cease and Desist Letter for a Bad Reference

What You Receive with the Cease & Desist Service:

  1. A legal analysis of your “unfavorable” reference. (Note that the assumption is that Allison & Taylor has already concluded a reference check on your behalf that has revealed unfavorable input from your reference.) AllisonTaylor.com will review your reference check report(s) with legal counsel after providing them with a copy of that report(s). (Please note that the attorney might decide that stronger legal recourse than Cease & Desist could be available to you.  If so, you will be advised directly by the attorney.)

  2. After our consultation with the attorney you will receive a rough draft of the C&D letter. Within 1 week - providing you approve the draft immediately upon receipt -- the letter will be sent via certified (signature-required) mail to the CEO or appropriate senior management representative you identify within your former company.

  3. Note that the attorney letter that will be transmitted on your behalf is a copyrighted work product.

  4. A final copy of the Cease & Desist letter sent to you via email the day it is sent to the company.

  5. After approximately four weeks has passed from the time the company receives the Cease & Desist letter, a follow-up reference check is conducted. You will be asked to input this follow-up order on a no-charge basis.

  6. In the unlikely event our organization is called upon to serve in a deposition regarding your negative reference, AllisonTaylor.com will serve in this capacity (some fees may apply, depending on services required).

  7. Your references are kept on file with our firm for an additional 12 months, on a complimentary basis. You must send us an email when the file is to be archived and you receive notice. Typically this service fee is $19.95 per 6 months per reference.

  8. Perhaps most importantly, you will gain peace of mind knowing that this unfavorable reference is being addressed and should not result in your loss of future employment.

Due to the price competitiveness of this quote (generation of a Cease & Desist letter is typically $1,200), note that any additional demands on the attorney's time - e.g., calls or emails -- will result in additional fees to you. Additional fees of $75 will be billed in 15- minute increments for additional time with Allison Taylor or the attorney.

To proceed, please complete the attachment form indicated here and provide:
(1) your authorization for Allison & Taylor to share the reference files conducted on your behalf with an attorney

(2) your acceptance of the terms above and your authorization for AllisonTaylor.com to bill you $395 for the services as described in this communication.

Please advise if you authorize AllisonTaylor.com to utilize your credit card number on file (previously used for your reference check(s), or whether we should contact you to obtain different billing information. Please with your authorization per the above (do not email any credit card information; this can be provided via phone).

To send the Cease & Desist letter to the CEO/senior management of your former employer, we will need from you:

  1. Name of the Officer

  2. Title of the Officer

  3. Full U.S. mail address, Street Address if preferred (where this person is located)

  4. Fax number (if available)

  5. Email (if available)

  6. Phone number[s]

These may also be provided via the form below.

Note that the company representative who gave the negative reference will be named in that letter. The reference-checking firm contracted by you (AllisonTaylor.com) will NOT be named in the letter.

Also note that, while this process has proven effective in most instances, it is not possible to offer a guarantee of our efforts, nor is any portion of the overall fee refundable.
