How do I get my mileage reimbursement from my employer?

I was informed at the beginning of last month that my weekly mileage reimbursement would only be paid to me once monthly. After 4 weeks of turning in mileage sheets I should have been paid on the 1st. of this month. Well needless to say I keep getting the run around as to why it’s not been paid yet. Is there something I should do? Thanks to them, I won’t be able to make my health insurance payment and can’t afford the gas I need to actually do my job.

I would speak with your supervisor or your human resources department first as to why you have not been paid for your mileage reimbursement as represented. Possibly the sheets may have been lost or misplaced. The best person to ask is the person who collected the reimbursement sheet from you.
