Lower Gas Prices Translates to Reduced Mileage Reimpursement Rates

The mileage reimbursement rate for all travel expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2009 is now 55.0 cents per mile. This rate change applies to all claimants, regardless of injury date, and coincides with the federal mileage reimbursement rate pursuant to Section 31-312(a) of the Workers’ Compensation Act.

Is the standard reimbursement rate the same for non-profit employees, or is that different?

It would make no difference. An "Employee" is an "Employee" under the Act, non-profit or otherwise.

thanks much...so when my NP employer is telling me that they can only reimburse at $.40 per mile, do they need to legally abide by federal law and follow the $.55?
