The California Labor Code requires employers to reimburse employees for all necessary expenses incurred as a direct consequence of their job duties. This means that employers must reimburse employees for non-commuting auto mileage when employee use their own vehicles to perform duties (i.e. to travel from worksite to worksite). Other examples of potentially reimbursable expenses include cell phone fees and uniforms costs. Employees are entitled to timely, periodic reimbursement of covered expenses, generally not longer than 30 days from submitting expenses.
