Stuck with the bill at work? Know your reimbursement rights

Have you ever been expected to cover the cost of on-the-job expenses such as gas mileage and personal cellphone use? Have you been required to purchase your own tools or uniform? Under California law, these practices are often illegal - but unfortunately they remain common.

In most cases, when you cover costs on your employer's behalf, you should expect to be compensated. To help you learn more about this issue, I recently published a new white paper titled "Can They Make Me Pay For That? Work-Related Expenses And Reimbursement." It provides a starting point for answering some of the questions that may be on your mind, such as:

  • Do I have a right to reimbursement?
  • What if I agreed to cover the costs?
  • Can I get fired if I ask to be paid back?
  • How long do I have to request reimbursement?

If you are covering costs for your employer without reimbursement, it means the company is shifting its overhead costs onto you - and you don't have to stand for it. I encourage you to take a look at this free white paper to learn more about your reimbursement rights and how to protect them.
