Can my employer withhold pay expenses from 2015?

I found numerous old expenses where I made several business trips and paid out of pocket for hotel and airfare. The expenses date back to 2015. I have receipts and valid client meetings confirming.

I do not understand your question.

Did you request reimbursement in writing? Was your request timely and if not why not? If it was timely why have you waited more than a year to follow up?

How did you or your employer prepare your tax returns for 2015 without knowledge of reimbursement or whether you had unreimbursed expenses?

If you still work for this employer sounds like an accounting and tax issue to discuss with the employer. If you have parted ways probably a DOL claim or if it declines to intervene on your behalf a matter for small claims court. Good luck.
