    Default Refusal to pay Mileage

    My previous employer, MBS Management owes me ( and many other employees) mileage reimbursment. What can be done legally about this? They do have a mileage policy that lines out what will be paid and what won't, but all my miles fell under the approved expense. Of course, because they are MBS management, the company that owes everyone money, they refuse to pay. Can I just file in small claims or do I have to go to the labor board?

    You will have to file in small claims as expenses are not consider wages and you're state DOL will only address wages.

    Without reading it, I can't tell if your policy is considered binding or not. I do know that neither Federal or Texas law requires the paying of mileage.

    You can take unpaid mileage off your income tax, as an alternative.

    Of course, it's up to you which way to go.

    Wow! This is not the first time I've seen posts on this site from a former employee of MBS who defended them like a rabid dog wile he/ she was employed, only to be screwed by them after leaving. Does this leave any doubt in anyone's mind as to what kind of company this is? This is unbelievable, and yet I'm not surprised.
