        Just finalising the draft for you. How long has your wife been employed at the post office and is she still going into work or possibly off sick which would be entirely understandable?

          Employed as a counter clerk approx. 15 years. This particular one 17-06-2016 was start date . She is off sick due to work related stress. In the letter I posted to you ,it says were employed but she has not been notified that she has been sacked etc .

            I have prepared a draft response to the solicitors letter, as this is a public forum I have anonymised some of the content with "xxx" which you will just need to sort out. You may wish to tweak but it provides the basics of a response.

            Dear Sirs,

            Re: Your Client [Insert the Name] – Debt Recovery

            Further to your letter dated xxx in which you assert that on xxxx there was a shortfall in my till of £xxx which was later reduced to £xxx as of xxx, please can you provide the relevant and necessary evidence to prove these facts. Furthermore, as you are no doubt aware, your client, having reported the matter to the police, have confirmed that following their investigation into the accusation they will not be taking any further action.

            You also refer to my employment being in the past tense; “By way of background we understand that you were employed by our client…..”. Since I have not been dismissed nor resigned I am in fact still employed by your client, albeit currently signed off work due to [insert reason on Fit Note from the GP].

            In regard to the position your client has taken by withholding wages owed and due to me of £xxx, as effectively a contribution to the unevidenced shortfall, since I do not have a contract of employment that allows for such a deduction and no agreement was made with me to deduct the shortfall from my wages this is in fact an unlawful deduction of wages.

            Based on the above and with no evidence to prove the facts that your client is alleging I will be strongly defending any claim that may be brought.

            Your faithfully,
            I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
            If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.
