This episode’s question:
My company encourages conference attendance and reimburses expenses/travel. Previously I purchased a hotel stay for an event and was reimbursed immediately. More recently, I purchased a prepaid hotel stay and conference ticket for an event 2 months out, but my company has said that I can’t be reimbursed the cost of the hotel because I haven’t stayed there yet. Once the stay is complete, then I can add it with my other expenses for reimbursement.
While I should have been aware of this rule change and I’m thankfully financially stable, but how much could I push back? Should I take the risk or is this even really a point of concern?
