Am I required to drive my own vehicle while I am on the clock?
I work as a security guard for a company. Occasionally they have me work at one site for a time and then send me to another site in the next town while on the clock. They never said that I would have to drive my own vehicle before hiring me, nor do they compensate me for mileage. They also have security vehicle available for use and officers on other shift do use them to go to the other site. These vehicles are not being given to us however and we are required to drive ourselves to the other site.
Unfortunately, as a general rule in most states, there is no "right" to mileage reimbursement from an employer Most employment arrangements are what is known as "at will". Consequently an employer can hire/fire someone for any reason or no reason whatsoever, as well has increase/decrease salary/hours, promote/demote, and generally impose conditions/terms as it sees fit (and this includes the use of a personal vehicle and lack of mileage reimbursement). The only recourse you have is if there is a stated company policy covering this, or there is a union/employment agreement that governs, or this situation has arisen due to some type of discrimination, this action is perfectly legal.
Note: You may be eligible for a deduction on your taxes for this, so keep good records.
