I worked for a company as contractor from 2010 until May 2014. I have just been sent a letter from a solicitor acting on behalf of a client that I dealt with while working for the company. They are claiming in excess of $500 000 in losses/damages. The letter is addressed to myself, the 2 company directors and the company. The demand at the end though is for the company to settle the claim within a specified timeframe. What if any is my liability here and what action if any should I be taking to protect myself? I should mention that I myself am most likely going to be making an application to VCAT against the company for amounts owed to me which they are refusing to pay. Thanks.
