Unfortunately, your error was not having a contract in place from the start outlining training, costs and the right to reclaim if they leave within a certain period of time.
Therefore deducting the money without a contract or without the employee permission will be an illegal deduction.
Yes, But without a contract the deduction is illegal. You should have give. Her a contract at the very start if you wanted to rely restricted clauses.
Sorry, but if you make the deduction she can take action against you.
If she took a claim to court it would only be a small cost and that she can also include in her claim against you.
If she takes you to an employment tribunal that is free, no cost to her.
