Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, you cannot unilaterally decide to take a deduction from your employee. She is entitled to her entire paycheck. To the extent that you believe that you are entitled to reimbursement, your recourse would be to take her to court and get a judgment against her.
Regretfully, that would not be cost effective. She did not give 2 weeks notice - is she entitled to any vacation time if she has any left?
