I could add a lot more details to this question but I feel they don't have an affect. An employer told me to buy something. They agreed to reimburse me the next day. Now they're saying it will be a while because a deadline was missed. A different manager did this once before and this time I had a clear written agreement. The amount is relatively small (under $50) but I feel this is dishonest. I took a picture of the receipt and sent it to them shortly after the purchase was made. I normally would use a company supplied credit card but it wasn't working today. My manager told me to do this and I have it in writing.
How should I reply? What should I do? On one hand I'm not going to go nuclear and go to court over a small amount. On the other hand I don't want to do nothing.
I could reply "what deadline? we never agreed to this. When will I get reimbursed?"
Just because answers/comments are bringing it up, I am certain I met all my deadlines. I filled out the expense report in enough time (even though I would argue this was extraneous as the manager had expressly agreed to reimburse me the next day after I voiced concerns that I was concerned something like this would happen).
