Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
When you say a CCJ has it gone through court and he has won the claim?
ok but a CCJ is a County Court Judgment - it is what is issued by the court at the end of a claim once the claim has been won by one party
still here, it takes more than a minute or two to reply at times though as I am dealing with a number of costumers this eve
There is nothing stopping him from making a claim against you and he can try his luck in court. However, as he is the claimant, it is for him to prove that he ahs a valid claim. At the same time you can provide any defence and evidence you have to challenge his claim. So if you have all the times from the scanner and can prove when he was actually working, you can end up with a reasonably solid defence against his claim. It would then be for the judge to decide who is right and who is not. If he wins, you will either have to appeal or just pay what he has claimed for (or a proportion as ordered by the court). You won’t get any further issues if it is paid and you won’t be liable for his legal fees either. However, if you win then you would have nothing to pay and you can also threaten to report him to the police for fraud.
Does this answer your query?
the CCJ only stays on file if he wins and get the order against you for you to pay him and you do not pay within the month's deadline. As to claiming for the £3200, you are unlikely to do so as he has obviously done some work for you which means you would owe him something and cannot claim the full amount back. If you have already paid him what he was due, then you cannot claim anything else
All the best
