California law requires employers to reimburse their employees for all necessary business-related expenses.
All employees (and employees misclassified as independent contractors) are entitled to reimbursement for work-related expenses. Some of these expenses include uniforms, equipment, materials, training, business travel, business legal expenses, administrative costs, job related vehicle expenses – such as vehicle maintenance, repair, cleaning, and gas - which are used during the course and scope of employment. Employees cannot waive these rights by either oral or written agreement.
