I had a member of staff quit this week and have a query on getting some work wear back from him. I dont image theres any reason to go into details but he left rather un amicably.
He has numerous items of branded work wear which I would like back due parttly to its cost and also as i really dont want him wearing anything in public.
I was just planning on sending a letter requesting its return but would like any advise before sending as I dont imagine this being settled as easily as I would like !
Many Thanks in advance.

The chances of him sending the items back to you are zero, even if you send him a nice letter asking for their return.
It would be best to arrange to collect the items - or send someone (someone neutral) to collect the items and if he doesn't hand them over, hand him an invoice for the missing items before leaving the doorstep with an immediate demand for payment. This might encourage him to hand the stuff over there and then.
Good luck with this.

I would suggest to phone / write to the employee asking them to return all company property and inform them that if they do not return the property them you reserve the right to retain (value of property) from their final wages.

Otherwise you may be making an unlawful deduction from wages which could lead you open to being taken to an Employment Tribunal.
