Your Current or Former Employer Might Owe You Money!

 

Our law firm specializes in protecting the rights of California workers.  Many employers in California break the law when dealing with their employees.  If this happened to you, sign up below for a free confidential consultation.

One of the most common mistakes California employers make is failing to reimburse their employees for work-related expenses.  Under California Labor Code section 2802, employers are required to reimburse you for all reasonable expenses you incur in the course of your job.  These include:

  • Home office equipment like computers, printers, copiers, and furniture

  • Cellphone/telephone equipment and service

  • Mileage, car maintenance, and travel 

  • Required uniforms, tools, and safety equipment

  • Job training, education, and licensing/certification fees

  • Work-related subscriptions and memberships

And, if you spend part of your time working from home, your employer must also pay for:

  • Internet service

  • A portion of your electric and other utility bills

  • Home office supplies like printer paper, cartridges, and pens

  • Videoconferencing costs and equipment

  • And possibly, a portion of your rent or mortgage for the space occupied by your home office

Even if your employer reimburses some work-related expenses, it probably hasn't reimbursed all the expenses that are legally required.

You are allowed to recover up to 4 years of unreimbursed expenses, plus penalties, which might be a substantial amount of money.  Both current and former employers can be held liable.  It is illegal under federal and state law for a current or former employer to discriminate or retaliate against an employee  

If you would like a free consultation to find out whether you have a claim, please fill out the short form below.  We will keep your information completely confidential.  We handle all cases on contingency basis, meaning we are not paid unless we recover for you.
