They could sue you civilly. But the cost of hiring an attorney and going to trial is much more than they will ever get. They will probably send you a couple of letters and then forget it. If they go to trial it may cost you more than what they are billing you. But most lawyers I know would advise you to ignore it unless and until you end up in a court room.
Since you were an employee of the company and since I am not a labor lawyer you might ask the same question on a labor law page.
