Article 8: Expenses

ARTICLE 8

Expenses

Section 1. The Publisher shall pay all legitimate expenses incurred by employees in the service of the Publisher, and shall compensate for the use of an automobile in the service of the Publisher as follows:

The mileage rate is the current IRS standard. Future adjustments shall match adjustments in the IRS standard. All persons regularly using personal cars shall receive a basic fifteen dollars ($15.00) per week as a minimum guarantee, this basic payment to be included in the sum of mileage payment earned in any week. The list of those receiving this mileage guarantee shall be approved jointly by the representatives of Management and the Guild.

Section 2. Necessary working equipment shall be provided to employees and paid for by the Publisher.

Section 3. If an employee is proceeded against under law as a result of his or her assigned duties as a news or advertising person, except in the case of an employee who acts in reckless disregard of the truth, the Publisher shall meet all reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel selected by the employee. The Publisher shall have the discretion to determine that the first three law firms selected by the employee are unsatisfactory, but the fourth selection shall be accepted unless a legal or ethical conflict exists. The Publisher also shall indemnify such employee against loss due to fines or damages which may be assessed against him or her, and against loss of pay at the employee's regular straight time salary.
