Are your expense policies and procedures compliant with the laws governing reimbursements?

Employees incur expenses, including travel, training, equipment, and materials, in performing their jobs. The challenge for any business is having a firm grasp on which reimbursements should be treated as expenses and which ones should be treated as compensation.

With a growing number of employee expense reimbursements related lawsuits and administrative actions, your written policy and procedures must be accurate and specific, every time.

  • Papa John’s pizza franchise was ordered to pay employees a little more than $2.1 million in back wages, unreimbursed expenses, damages and interest.
  • Starbucks paid a reported $3 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging its travel expense policy violated state wage and hour laws.
  • Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. paid $1.5 million to settle a lawsuit alleging it required workers to wear clothes with distinctive designs without reimbursing them for what they claimed constituted uniforms.

It's situations like these that come up time and again for employers grappling to understand whether they're in compliance with the laws governing employee expense reimbursements.
