  • Gas mileage pay Texas Texas

    I work for a small company based out of Houston. We are expecting to get an office opened here in San Antonio, TX soon. My employer has many offices throughout Texas. We are expected to use our personal vehicules to travel to the outskirts of San Antonio (Surrounding cities) to work. My employer pays 40 cents a mile. Just yesterday, we received a memo that he will be lowering it down to 35 cents a mile. I asked my manager if that was right and he said that it depends on how many employees an employer has that they do not have to abide by the laws of a huge company. Is that legal? Can he do that? What is the legal pay for mileage in texas?? Our employer doesn't even pay us anything for maintenance on our vehicules. I love working for this company, but it seems unfair.

    In Texas, (and in 47 other states) there is no requirement that they pay ANYTHING for mileage. Regardless of how many employees there are.

    The above presumes that no legally binding contract or CBA specifically says otherwise.
    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.
