Hello my name is***** am a solicitor who will help with your inquiry today.

Is the amount that you owe on the account less than the amount she owes you for the 8 hours work and any superannuation she owes you? If so, you should tell the debt collector that if the debt collector doesn't leave you alone, you will lodge a claim in the Fair Work Commission for unpaid wages and therefore she will be responsible for paying more to you than you owe her.

If the amount you owe on the account is more than the 8 hours work and superannuation she owes you, you should pay the debt.

Has that helped you today?
