  • Mileage Reimbursement obligations? Utah

    My Husband works for a company that supplies cellular technicians for (deleted). Recently, he applied for a promotion, which he got, that required him to travel to a total of 5 different stores in their district. He was promised a raise, and mileage reimbursement. His company told him that they would pay him $.54/mile after 40 miles round-trip, which is the maximum expected commute. We live approximately 35 miles from the nearest store, so he submitted those qualifying mileage expenses every 2 weeks, as they asked. He was told that it could take up to 4 weeks to process each expense form before he would get reimbursement. He received expenses from october 2008 to december 2008, however he has only received one set of expenses so far in 2009, which we assume were from expenses incurred in 2008. It is now April, and we have still seen no reimbursement, and can't seem to get an honest answer from anyone in a managerial position. Is his company responsible for still paying out those expenses, or can they suddenly discontinue mileage reimbursement without notifying him?

    They are not required by law to pay mileage. He'll have to show any associated documentation to a Utah attorney to see if the promise to pay it is enforceable.
    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.
