Expense Reimbursements

Irvine Expense Reimbursement Lawyers

Are You Being Fairly Compensated for Work-Related Expenses?

Sometimes, employees have to spend money in order to do their job. Under California law, employers must reimburse their employees for all necessary expenditures or losses incurred in the discharge of their duties. Your employer cannot force you to purchase things that are necessary to do your job. If you have bought anything on behalf of your employer or company, you are entitled to reimbursement.

The Irvine expense reimbursement attorneys at Aegis Law Firm can assist you if your employer is refusing to provide the compensation you deserve. You should not be losing money at your job – we can fight for payment for all of the purchases you have made on the company’s behalf.

Call us today at (800) 543-4829 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

What Expenses Are Eligible for Reimbursement?

Basically anything you paid for in service to your job can be eligible for reimbursement, so long as your employer required you to obtain the service or item to maintain employment or be considered for advancement opportunities.

Common work-related expenses include:

  • Travel and automobile expenses, including a reasonable mileage reimbursement
  • Cell phone expenses if the employer requires the employee to carry a cell phone
  • Computers, calculators, and other pieces of equipment not provided by your employer but required to perform your job
  • Meals and entertainment paid for by employees in service to the business
  • Attendance at seminars and conventions related to your job

The Internal Revenue Service's standard mileage reimbursement rate for business travel is 56.5 cents per mile for 2011. Employees working from a home office are entitled to reimbursement of business expenses as well. Labor Code section 2802 has been interpreted to require employers to indemnify an employee for legal costs incurred defending lawsuits arising from conduct within the course and scope of employment. For example, one employer was required to reimburse an employee for legal costs arising from the employee's successful defense of a sexual harassment lawsuit by a co-worker.

If you believe you are entitled to reimbursement for work-related expenses, contact us online today. We serve clients throughout Orange and Los Angeles counties.
