Thank you, ***** ***** amended version below:
Thank you for your letter. I strongly dispute the claims you have made and wish to point out the following in response:-
1. My actions which led to me no longer being employed by your client and which you are now trying to claim for did not result in your client incurring any losses. The reasons for the investigation and my subsequent resignation were linked to corporate hospitality, which I received by third party suppliers, and not your client.
2. You mention damage to a company car. There was no damage to my company car, other than normal wear and tear. No mention of any such damage was made in the letter I received from your client's HR Department when they accepted my letter of resignation.
3. Your letter mentions that the incidents of misconduct were identified on 1 July 2016. This is incorrect and they were actually identified on [DATE]
4. The amount of the claim is exorbitant. I would ask you to provide a detailed breakdown of how you have arrived at a figure of £100,662.47. Your explanation that it covers compensation for investigation costs, security costs and administration costs is inadequate and unreasonable.
I would also add that I have sought legal advice and have been advised that your client is unable to claim for losses which they have not sustained, which would include any benefits received from suppliers. Trying to pursue me for costs or losses which have not been incurred through my actions and which could not have been mitigated would be akin to applying a penalty clause and would be unlawful. I therefore reiterate again that I strongly dispute your claim and would require a full and detailed itemisation of the costs you are claiming.
I look forward to hearing from you.
