mileage reimbursement

What can I do about mileage reimbursement??
Before I ended the employment relationship, I turned in my mileage report. I was supposed to get over $200. The check was mailed to me, but I only received $56.00. this is very troubling to me. I was told I would have to use my own vehicle. They should pay me what they owe me.

No quick remedy for unreimbursed expenses

When an employer fails to pay an employee's final pay, there is an administrative remedy available. You can make a wage claim with the Labor Department of the Industrial Commission of Arizona. Unfortunately, expense reimbursement is not wages, so your only remedy is to file a claim in the Justice Court. Because the amount is so small, it isn'n practical to hire an attorney. The justice court in the precinct in which your employer does business should have forms for you to use to file your suit. Although it qualifies for the informal procedures of the small claims division, the employer will probably be represented by an attorney, which means the court will treat it like a regular civil suit.
