A Potential Mileage Reimbursement Class Action on behalf of Traveling California Salespeople Is In The Works
Lawyers have recently been investigating California companies and whether or not they are reimbursing their traveling salespeople for gas mileage, if they are using their personal vehicles at work.
If you are a traveling salesperson working in California, the law about business expense reimbursement states that your employer must pay you back all necessary expenses or losses that you incur while you are performing your duties.
Reimbursement for using your personal vehicle for work-related travel is stated under the section 2802 of California’s Labor Code.
The following are expenses that can be reimbursed:
- Auto insurance
- Parking fees
If you are a traveling salesperson and have not been reimbursed properly for your work-related travel expenses, you may be eligible to collect money owed to you, plus interest!
In a successful case, the court might also declare your company’s reimbursement policy illegal, and may ask them to change it for the better. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact us today!
Why You Should Speak Up
There are laws that will protect you (both California and federal), and prohibits your employer from retaliating against you for exercising your legal right.
