You Can Recover the Money You Are Owed for Working from Home!
During the Covid-19 pandemic, many employers told their employees to work from home. But did you know that, under California law, employers were responsible to pay all reasonable and necessary home office expenses? These include the following:
Cost of internet service and equipment
Cost of cellphone/telephone expenses and equipment
Home office equipment like computers, printers, copiers, and furniture
Office supplies like toner, paper, pens, and postage
Mileage and car expenses for work-related errands and travel
Increased electric bills and other utilities because of working from home
Our law firm specializes in making sure California employees are paid properly. If you incurred expenses working from home that your employer did not reimburse, you might be entitled to a substantial monetary recovery. Even if your employer paid you a home office stipend, we have found that stipends are often insufficient to cover all work-from-home expenses.
This is very important: It is illegal for a current or former employer to discriminate or retaliate against an employee who makes a claim for unpaid wages or expenses. You cannot be penalized in any way for asserting your legal rights.
