EMPLOYER REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES--NY

I use my own cash, credit card for approved, allowed business expenses such as gasoline, T/E, Office,Printing supplies, etc. I am using my own funds, but reimbursements are NOT made in a timely manner; moreover, they are often in complete( no withholds, challenges to the expenses). If using my own money sources, is company obligated to re-pay within a set period of time?

Not timely? Not within 30 days of submission? Maybe ask your payroll dept. (whoever is responsible for reimbursement to acknowledge receipt at the time you deliver your next request for reimbursement). If you are not exempt as per paragraph 3 below they get 30 days to pay. See:

Section 198c of the New York State Labor Law
Section 198c. Benefits or wage supplements.

1. In addition to any other penalty or punishment otherwise prescribed by law, any employer who is party to an agreement to pay or provide benefits or wage supplements to employees or to a third party or fund for the benefit of employees and who fails, neglects or refuses to pay the amount or amounts necessary to provide such benefits or furnish such supplements within thirty days after such payments are required to be
made, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction shall be punished as provided in section on hundred ninety-eight-a of this article. Where such employer is a corporation, the president, secretary, treasurer or officers exercising corresponding
functions shall each be guilty of a misdemeanor.

2. As used in this section, the term “benefits or wage supplements” includes, but is not limited to, reimbursement for expenses; health, welfare and retirement benefits; and vacation, separation or holiday pay.

3. This section shall not apply to any person in a bona fide executive, administrative, or professional capacity whose earnings are in excess of nine hundred dollars a week.
