Must an employer reimburse mileage expense for a work related

This answer was rated:

Must an employer reimburse mileage expense for a work related trip? If a restaurant employer directs their employee to drive to the bank to drop off a cash deposit on their way home, must the employee be reimbursed for a mileage expense? Does it matter if the employee is exempt or non-exempt? Hourly or Salary? I have restaurants in these states: UT, AZ, NE, MO, NM, and IL. Thanks.
Hi, thanks for submitting your question today. None of these states requires employers to reimburse mileage expenses....this is regardless of whether the employee is hourly or salary. If the employee is hourly however, he or she would be owed hourly compensation technically to the time they complete the task as it is technically labor they otherwise wouldn't be doing.
