What is a NTO?
Notice to Owner documents are used to protect your lien rights as a staffing company and can help ensure you get paid on every job.
Within the light industrial world there may be times where staffing companies may need to track a Notice to Owner (NTO) on anyone who supplies labor or services to a contractor on construction jobs. Sending the NTO can protect the rights of the staffing company to ensure they are paid for the construction project. Users typically will utilize the NTO section of TempWorks to make sure that the company who issued the NTO has been paid by the contractors.
To Setup an NTO
To set up the NTO, navigate to your customer and select 'worksites' underneath the 'details' drop-down of the customer record. Here, you may add or edit a worksite:
Select the worksite for which you'd like to add the NTO tracking information:
