California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Must an employer reimburse mileage expense for a work related trip? If my restaurant employer tells me I must drive to the bank to drop off a cash deposit on my way home, don't I get reimbursed? Does it matter if I am exempt or non-exempt? Hourly or Salary? Does it matter what state I work in (CA, UT, AZ, NE, MO, IL)? Thanks.
I am currently working in California. I would be happy to have an answer to just CA if it also included notations about any differences that may exist between Federal law and CA law. Thank you.
Also, it makes no difference whether the employee is exempt or non-exempt, hourly or salaried.
You would be entitled to reimbursement for the mileage spent going to the bank under California Labor Code Section 2802.
