  • Reimbursement

    I worked for this guy's small company at home. In order to do the job I needed a phone and the internet. He never reimbursed me for any of these monthly expenses. Is he required by MA law to do so?

    To my knowledge, CA is the only state which has formal rules requiring that employers reimburse business related expenses. Even there, you would have to show that the expenses would not have occured at all other then for your employer's requirements. Most people these days had both phones and internet access prior to going to work for their current employer.

    Small claims court is still a legal possiblity even if the MA labor code does not directly support the action.

      MA law does not require that he reimburse you for such expenses.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        I Served no MA

        I was working part time, at home...only one day a week. My boss was on vacation. I told him on Thursday that my last day was Friday. Is he still required to pay me for that final day I worked during the week? He said I didn't do anything so he isn't going to pay me.

          If you worked, you must be paid. Why does he think you weren't working?
