An employee is entitled to reimbursement for all expenses incurred within the scope of employment, under Labor Code 2802. The statute of limitations on enforcement of a reimbursement claim under Section 2802 is three years. See Code Civ. Proc. 338(a). Based upon the time that has passed, if the employer refuses to reimburse you, then you could not enforce your claim in court or through the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE).
So, you can submit your reimbursement claim to your employer. But, if your employer refuses to reimburse you, you won't be able to do anything to force reimbursement.
Hope this helps.
