Is an employment application considered a contract?

My employer is requiring me to drive 100 miles per day to a remote facility. It is at my own expense without any kind of reimbursement. When I applied for this position I specifically indicated I was not willing to travel. Would this fall under the definition of breach of contract?

Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

Travel Reimbursement

Unfortunately, employers are not required to reimburse employees for expenses incurred in connection with their work, including travel expenses

However there are some exceptions to the rule> If there is an employee contract, such as an employment contract, calls for reimbursement, that contract must be honored. There must be a writing that has a clear, unequivocal statement in an employee handbook about reimbursement may be considered to form a contract.

If there is no contract, but the employer promised to reimburse the employee for travel, and it was on the basis of that promise that the employee expended money on travel, that promise may also be enforceable under a theory known as “promissory estoppel”

If you have proof that the travel requirements or reimbursements were promised, its best to contact a worker compensation attorney that can help you evaluate your case and determine whether you can be reimbursed for this cost. Use legalmatch's service for a case evaluation regarding your issue.
