What have they counterclaimed?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Hi Ben,
They counterclaimed that I didn t gave them notice one week, although I did not signed a contract with them. I work as self employed.
I was supposed to take 1000 pounds for last week of work , after telling them I will take legal actions for not giving me my money they sent me 240 pounds cheque and 720 pounds they put as penalties for no notice period and not complying with Health and Safety procedures
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Health and Safety has nothing to do with my money , in my opinion , I haven t received any warning in any site ever. They just put as an excuse
