Can an agent be prosecuted for signing a cheque for and on behalf of his employer who is the account holder? I am not the account holder and only an employee. The company has got serious dispute with the payee regarding liability as well. Now I have received a lawyer's notice from the payee. I am at Ekm and the payee company is in Mumbai. Can I file a counter case against the payee Co.
no.. You cannot file any counter but you can defend your case by denying facts of notice.
