Is Your Employer Reimbursing Job Expenses As Required By Law?
California state law requires employers to cover “all necessary expenditures or losses incurred by the employee in direct consequence of the discharge of his or her duties.” (See California Labor Law 2802). Examples include uniforms, photographs, mandatory medical exams and other business expenses. Does your employer follow this rule? If not, what can you do to protect your rights?
You may be financially inconvenienced when your employer requires you to pay for internet services to work at home at a time when all employees are required to work at home. You may use gasoline to make deliveries for your employer. Your employer may insist that you wear particular shoes when doing business with clients on the employer’s behalf.
In any such situation, it is worthwhile to ask an employment law attorney for advice. Can you stand up for your rights without jeopardizing your good reputation as a team player in your company? Manfred, APC, has years of experience advising workers who had been taken advantage of by their employers. We often find that it would not be financially feasible for an individual employee to take on an employer in such a case, but that a class action can solve the problem.
