And this is how unions came to be???
I NEVER EVER EVER get a job accepted that I submit with PAD. I can't imagine the company that is requesting this job to be done would think this is appropriate, that all these expenses come out of ones pocket. I searched high and low for an answer to this or some guidelines or boundaries and all I found was something written from a lawyer standpoint who worked as an independent consultant for various jobs. I know IC in all types of fields that are allowed to submit "job specific" expenses, travel time compensation, mileage, tolls, meals, hotel stays, in addition to on the road out of the office expenses needed for job completion. Why is this any different? And this is how unions came to be???
I submitted one time for just over $20. It was a combination of 4 different tolls I paid on one trip. It just came up with an additional text box asking why they were so high, and I explained that for that time of day, the route I took was best. I was not asked any further questions.
