Ask Firm for Reimbursement from 1 Year Ago?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:43 pm

I interviewed with a firm 1 year ago and was offered a SA, which I turned down for another firm. They never sent me a reimbursement check for meals, transportation, etc. I'm looking at my email request right now, and they owe me about $50. Should I ask again (politely, of course)? Or should I just forget about it?

Why "politely of course"? If you are asking for 50 buck after a year, you may as well do it rudely.

If you legitimately asked and never heard anything... well, I don't see the harm in asking again.

I wanted to add: I think you should threaten them with small claims court.

You seriously waited a whole year to follow up on this?

Don't forget to ask for the interest on the $50 too.
