Good evening,

It sounds like your employer has made an unlawful deducton from your wages and in the circumstances you could take him to the employment tribunal (http://www.employmenttribunals.gov.uk/FormsGuidance/makingAClaim.htm) for unlawful deductions from wages. You have to issue the claim within 3 months of the deduction and can issue it online.

Regards
