  • Using personal property for work.

    It recently became policy where I work, at a helpdesk for a university in Kansas, that if we brought in our own laptops, they were expected to be used for work purposes. And on more than one occasion, there were issues brouhgt to me that could only be fixed if I did use my laptop. Most noticibly, there was a network outage and the Only way I could work was because my laptop connected to a different system. The work provided computers could not access the internet, but mine could.

    Is my employer required to compensate me for wear-and-tear or anything like that?

    I read in a different thrad somithing along the lines of:
    An employee must be compensated for anything required by or allowed by the employer.

    Payment for Expenses

    In Kansas, your employer is not required to compensate you for the use of your own equipment, unless the cost of the usage brings you below minimum wage.
