Employers have a duty in California, under Labor Code section 2802, to reimburse employees for losses and reasonable expenses incurred in the performance of their job duties. This makes sense, as an employer should not be able to pass along to employees the expenses of operating their business. The Industrial Wage Commission (IWC) wage orders in California also call for the reimbursement of specific expenses such as tools, equipment, and uniforms.
If your employer refuses to reimburse you for losses and/or expenses that you have reasonably incurred on the job, contact the wage and hour attorneys at Kyle Todd, PC at (866) WORK-LAW. Ask about our free initial case consultation.
