Read Sonya Goodwin’s recent article that was published on Law360 about California employers’ obligations to reimburse employees for necessary business expenses when they work remotely. As discussed in the article, this obligation was reiterated in a recent California Court of Appeal decision, Thai v. International Business Machines Corp., which was brought by an employee who was required to work remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic and was not reimbursed by his employer for the necessary costs associated with having to work from home.
