I need some advice about a Tomlin Order I signed

This answer was rated:

Hi I need some advice about a Tomlin Order I signed for an out of court settlement, to stop a court hearing date scheduled for /2015, for a claim for unpaid wages. However my ex employer then asked for further conditions outside of the agreed order and I refused. She now has a solicitor threatening me on 'extreme cross examination and costs' should the hearing going ahead. I'm terrified as I can not afford any legal representation!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether the Court sealed the consent order?

Good morning Alex
Thank you for responding so promptly. I received a call from the court to say they had received my claim for the hearing and also that the Tomlin Order had been received. They asked if I wanted the hearing to still go ahead which I said yes, on the 2nd June 2015
I believe she only contacted me as a way to waste time for me to serve my claim within 14 days of the hearing
Kind regards

Sorry, I believe this order has not been sealed as it has been returned to her solicitor, to which I received a scare monger and threatening response, to extreme cross examin me on the day of the hearing
The judge won't allow extreme cross examination. Only what is necessary.
But if you sign a tomlin order then the case ends.
Does that helps.

Morning AlexThe order had 2 agreements, 1) she had offered to pay £2,000 on receipt of signed order, 2) £1,800 on receipt of items of goods, i.e laptop etc to stop the case going to court, out of court settlement She then requested I sign an application to remove my details from the business bank account at Santander. However, she falsely signed my signature on an application for me to be removed last year in April 14, only 1 month after we opened the account, which I found out in Sept 14. I refused to sign this knowing the account had been frozen due to her application and the signatures didn't match. She then refused to pay £2000 until I did. Since Worcester County Court have received my claim for the hearing as she didn't uphold the Tomlin Order, I have received this letter from her solicitor. I might add, she was sacked from her last role, for gross misconduct for falsifying and invoiceIt's all rather messy!
Ok, then you should go with the hearing and deal with the claim there.
Does that help?
