FAILURE TO REIMBURSE EXPENSES


The California Labor Code requires that employers reimburse each employee for any expenses that the employee incurs in the course of his or her job. For example, if your employer requires you to wear a uniform at work, the employer must provide the uniform or reimburse you for the cost of it. The employer must also pay the cost of laundering your uniform. Similarly, if you are required to spend money on a telephone bill, postage, subscriptions, or office equipment as part of your job, the employer must reimburse those expenses.
