Expense reimbursement time frame
My company's employees all work from home offices throughout the US. CA Labor Code 2802 requires employees be reimbursed for all expenses they incur "in direct consequence of the discharge of duties." However, I have not seen any guidance for whether or not there can be a time limit placed for submittal of expenses. Our accountant would like to request that employees submit expenses within a three month period after which the expense was incurred and then deny the reimbursement for late requests. Does anyone know of any prohibitions against doing this?
