I live in Missouri. I was terminated from employment in March. Since then I have received my final wages through direct deposit but before my termination I fulfilled a training business trip to New Jersey and back and was promised about $1600 in reimbursement for travel expenses between mileage put onto my personal vehicle and lodging. I have not received compensation for that yet. Tomorrow I am going in to pick up my final pay stubs since none have been mailed to me and I plan on requesting my reimbursement then. I just want to know my legal rights in regards to a time frame that my reimbursement is owed and preferably a citation of a law that I can present to them should they decide to resist paying me for services completed prior to termination.
