My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
Hi and thanks in advance for any advice. I work for a large pharma company as a sales rep. They provide a company car, fuel card and all maintenance, however they deduct $120 a month from my paycheck for "personal use of company car". We are required to log on a spreadsheet daily miles as well as where we went and submit once a month. I was pretty much only using my company car for visits to clients and not for personal use. I have two cars of my own that I drive for personal use. I was meticulously recording actual miles and after few months someone from corporate told my manager to tell me that I needed to show 20% personal use of the company car. There was also disagreement between managers as to wether the miles between my home office and my first client visit was personal or business, also the trip from the last client stop back to the home office. I have conflicting emails regarding this.
So, they want me to fabricate data for these milage reports. Now they want us to install a tracking app on our personal cell phones. They do allow me to add my cell phone bill into my monthly expense reports up to $100.00. I am not comfortable with them tracking me even during off hours, 24/7. I am about to give then the middle finger, load the app on the phone and toss the phone on a train. I wish I could see their tax filings and see how they record the $120.00 per month from hundreds of sales reps that they deduct.
