No....because if you were coming in from your home city and got cancelled on, you wouldn't have expensed Sunday night. Just cuz you're coming from elsewhere doesn't mean that changes.

What on earth...? Why would you charge your vacation hotel in as an expense?

By the book.. No. Alt travel hotel is on your own. Weather delay at a business location is another story

Don't see why not. You could just as easily be traveling out of Chicago every week.

Asking for trouble. There is no way you're going to be able to explain this later, if asked.

No, that's on you...but you could change flights early to avoid the situation which could be charged to the project, just ask your manager

If you had not alt traveled, you'd have been home. Can't see how/why any of your expenses at the alt travel destination can be expensed

like

Just don't do it. Alt travel is not for the benefit of your employer, it's a perk. Use points...you probably have plenty if you travel weekly.

I take that back. You'd obviously have a home if you lived in Chicago normally.

No client is in Chicago. Was going to expense hotel Sunday night in Chicago anyway for early client meeting on Monday. If I get stuck in alt location can I expense?

No, bad optics. Probably not policy compliant unless you clear it with project mgmt

Just check with your team leader

Yes. Doesn't matter why, always expense hotel if you get stuck for work.

If the flight was booked on a credit card (probably not?) cards like CSR will pay Trip Delay benefits up to $500 for lodging and similar if there is a 6 hour delay OR if the trip requires an overnight stay. Just looked at my policy booklet.

What if your flight wasn't direct? Just say you got stuck in connecting city

Interviewed for Deloitte S&A Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus.
