What to do after you get a negative response from a Demand Letter you sent for unpaid invoicing

I have been working for a large company for 1yr and 8months Monday-Friday.  I have been invoicing for 40hrs per week charging GST and paid weekly through direct deposit.  Job duties were maintenance and work was on a demand basis with instructions given on a daily, hourly basis.  I asked for a contract twice and was told that they would hire me on first.  At the beginning of August I had a family holiday booked off for a week and was told that I would have to delay it as they needed me to stay and work throughout the weekend.  I cancelled my holiday and rebooked for August 18th-August 26th.  I was asked if I could build and install divider walls in main offices and I agreed however reminded them that I am going on holidays and will do my best to complete as much as I could as long as I wasn't asked to do other things.  I did perform several other duties for the management and before leaving for holidays there was one final sanding and some painting that needed to be done.  They said they would hire a temp worker to finish this project to whom I met on my last day before holidays and he confirmed that he was there to perform that work. 

Upon returning from my holidays I submitted my invoice for hours worked which also included about $250 worth of materials I purchased and was told that I would have to deduct $1100 from my invoicing for work they had to hire out to complete the job.  I asked for a copy of this invoice and was immediately fired and escorted out of the building.  I contacted my managers supervisor by email and asked him to mediate this situation, his response was accusing as well and he didn't want to have any conversations by email, over the phone or in person and he would send my a copy of the things we discussed?   I sent a demand letter this week for the submission and payment of my outstanding invoice and they are responding that the work was sub standard...I do not have a contract with this company for anything including this job, what should I do from this point.  The work was not sub standard and even if it was in there eyes I could have rectified any discrepencies upon returning from my holiday.  What should I do  at this point.
