What happens if an employee who has resigned 'owes' us leave hours?

Question: An employee has resigned and she owes hours for annual leave taken in advance. She also currently owes hours she has taken off work but still received payment for (no leave entitlements used). She has been working additional hours without pay to make up this time. Are we able to deduct this from her final pay? If the leave taken in advance is more than the final pay, is there an enforceable loan that the employee has to repay?
