No, there is no timeline set by law for this, unfortunately. They have to pay within a "reasonable" period of time, but reasonable is not defined in the law. (There are laws for when you have to pay a final paycheck, but not for reimbursement of expenses.) That said, most invoices are generally due within 30 days of submission, in most contexts, so the amount of time is probably not unreasonable until more than a month has passed.
