Mileage Reimbursement From Home Base

Postby Domokos » Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:02 pm

I work for a company which requires that I use my car for business. I am reimbursed for mileage. In the past, I used my residence as my start and end points(home base). I was told that now this is against federal law. I was told I had to use the main office as my start and end points, even though I do not have to physically drive there. I live 45 mi from the main office, so 90 miles would be subtracted from the actual mileage I drove for the day.  However, my company now keeps changing my start and end points. Sometimes, when it's to their advantage, they tell me to compute the miles from my home. Other times they tell me to compute the miles from their main office. I think that I should only use one base of operations. For example, if I need to start work 40 miles from my residence, I am told that I must use the main office as my starting point(home base). However, if, during the same day, my travels take me closer to my residence, I am told I must use my residence as my end point(home base) when computing mileage. This, in effect, completely negates all miles traveled for reimbursement. So in one day my office is telling me that I must use a different starting and ending point(home base). Can this be correct? It seems that in a usual day I travel more than 100 miles. These double starting and ending points sometimes mean that I can claim no mileage reimbursement at all. Could you please clarify? Is there really a law that governs this? I need help as I have a family to feed.

ANSWER: I have answered this question previously.

I have never asked this question before. I read many of your responses and cannot find where you may have answered it. Could you please leave me the link, so I could read it.

Thanks again.

Mileage Reimbursement From Home Base

Perhaps you asked this question of thelaborboard.ocm.  I have reviewed the question and it is identical to yours.  The answer is the same.  In brief the employer is taking advantage of you.  You should negotiate the best deal you can b/c the federal law(www.dol/.gov/esa/whd is not on your side in this dispute.  You may also find more helpful information at(www.usa.gov) and/or by discussing this matter with a labor lawyer.
