I work in Michigan, USA, and a while ago me and my manager attended a conference in a different state, which was related to our job. And I forgot my suit jacket there on the chair when we left.
Earlier yesterday, we brought up the story with someone from outside the company (We were laughing about a similar story) where that someone asked "And did you expense it?"
I did not ask my employer to buy me a new jacket when it happened, as I don't think me forgetting the jacket is a reasonable claim, and I am not planning to claim it now.
There was no chance to go back and get it when I mentioned I forgot my jacket right when we arrived back to the hotel, and they said they are sorry that it happened.
But that made me wonder, was it claimable? And is there a standard for what is claimable and what is not?
