Covering costs at work? You should expect to be compensated

I recently published a white paper explaining what your rights are when you cover expenses on the job in California. If you have not yet taken look at it, I encourage you to take a few minutes and do so now. It could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

If your boss requires you to purchase your own uniform, use your own car or cellphone, or cover other job-related expenses at work, there is a very good chance that you have a legal right to reimbursement. However, just because your employer is required by law to pay you back does not necessarily mean they will. This white paper explains:

  • How to tell if you might be entitled to reimbursement
  • What your rights are if your boss owes you money for work-related expenses
  • How much time you have before your rights expire

Sometimes companies fail to reimburse employees due to honest mistakes or misunderstanding of the law, while other times it is a deliberately unlawful and unethical tactic to increase profits.

Either way, the bottom line is that when you cover costs on the job, it is taking money out of your pocket and using it to cover your employer's operating expenses. Therefore, you should expect to be compensated. Learning about your reimbursement rights and how to protect them is the first step toward making sure your boss doesn't shift the company's overhead costs onto you.
