Are you asking if you are liable?
Does he deny that you were offering to put this right?
Or allege that you were taking too long about it?
What is his specific ground for refusing to allow you to work on it?
For what particular reason?
Or does he now give one?
Yes, I understand but does he give a reason for taking that view?
Well, it is not that simple. He cannot just remove you from the job and fail to give you a reasonable opportunity to put this right within a short time period. The only exception would be if he has lost faith but that isn't an emotional decision . He would have to show that he had a good solid reason to believe that you are not capable of completing this work. He may invent one but he hasn't given one at the moment.
That said, since you did not put this right a Judge might accept that you should not be paid the full value of the work but he certainly wouldn't get additional compensation.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You are entitled to be paid the value of the job that you did.
Arguably you are entitled to the full amount as you completed the work and it is not your fault you were not allowed to put right this fault.
However a Judge may take the view that you should be paid for that specific task as you didn't perform it.
He doesn't have a claim for the rest back.
I suppose you could respond saying no more than that you don't believe you are liable because he has not given you a reasonable opportunity to put this right.
Don't get involved in lengthy debate though. These things can dominate your time and people in work need to be moving on.
No problem and all the best.
