Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Why is he asking for it back?
SO what is he doing now, is he claiming against you or just asking you for repayment?
It is difficult to say what your rights are without actually knowing why he thinks you should not have been paid. Maybe he disagrees with the work you did and that it was not necessarily or not of satisfactory quality, but if it was given to you by a director then the shareholder cannot overrule that and ask for the money back after the event.
For now you should ask for specific details of why he is making such requests and do not be bullied into repaying anything. If he wants to force you to pay him back, let him do the hard work and to be honest the only way it can happen is if he takes you to court and win. He would need to prove this was equitable and necessary, and that can be difficult. Perhaps you should call his bluff, although it is up to you if you wanted to do that. It may be the best way to deal with it at this early stage though.
