How to do you recoup costs from an employee?

We have let one of our employees go recently BUT we are having to incur costs because of this employee and we want them to be responsible for them and recoup our money from them. For example, they damaged our lifter and caused a mess with the hydraulic fluid from the lifter which a clean up crew had to be called in to clean up plus the cost of the repair guy for the lifter. We are also having to have the van he used detailed because of the state of it when we got it back from him (it is stated in our employment contract that the vehicles are to be kept clean and tidy inside and out). He failed to do this and the van is in a disgusting state. I know that I cannot reduce his hours to recoup this money but am I able to adjust his leave or add these on as "deductions"?

Unfortunately this is not the forum for such a query. There are several lawyers in the marketplace who specialize in in the field and your accountant may be able to assist you. Once you have advice there are ways of doing what you propose in MYOB.

Re: How to do you recoup costs from an employee?

Thanks for ronatbas - I have had advice from my accountant and I don't think we can take it any further unless we retain a lawyer and I think that will cost more than the amount we were hoping to recover from him.
