Failure To Reimburse You For Meals And Mileage May Be Equivalent To Illegal Withholdings From Your Paycheck
If your employer requires you to incur expenses such as telephone service fees, the purchase of a computer, purchase of office supplies, postage and travel expenses such as meals and mileage — but does not reimburse you for those expenses — it is time to talk to an employment law attorney. The Employee Rights Group, LLC in Boston is available to evaluate your case and represent you in a civil claim to recover wages in the form of improperly withheld business expenses.
Recent Court Cases Involving An Employer’s Failure To Reimburse Business Expenses
In an initial consultation, one of our lawyers can help determine whether your situation is similar to that described in a recent case brought before the Superior Court in Essex County. In that case, HEATHER FRAELICK vs. PERKETTPR, INC., & another, the court determined that reimbursement of business expenses amounted to wages. Therefore, when the plaintiff’s employer did not keep its promise to repay travel expenses for assigned work activity, that employer unlawfully withheld payment of wages to that employee.
