My company has a mileage reimbursement agreement with their employees.

My company has a mileage reimbursement agreement with their employees. The trouble is, they don’t consistently pay in a timely manner. Some employees get theirs on time, while others can wait over a month to get theirs. What options do employees have to ensure timely reimbursement payment?

There are no good options. If the company is not paying within the agreed-upon time, which would be--
* The time specified for reimbursement in a contract or agreement, if you have one covering this; or
* The time specified in some written policy statement or manual, if there is one; or
* The time established by past practice or precedent (what has been, and when reimbursement has been in the past; past practice can establish the expectations of the parties governing payment)
--then you could sue for the money for "breach of contract" for violating that explicit or implicit agreement. But that's the only option to compel payment: a lawsuit vs. the employer.
