The question Should I ask for travel expenses to be paid for a position that later closed? is a very good question. A few reasons why I feel it should be reopened:
- It does not ask for a legal advice or a company specific one.
- This is a question that anyone who has travelled across cities/countries to give an interview would want to know about.
- This addresses a scenario which is not too uncommon.
- Interview process in itself is a workplace related issue and I do not see how this question can be marked as off-topic.
- The OP asks if he can ask for compensation from the organisation. He is not asking if the organisation has to provide compensation. Please note that there's a huge difference between the two. The former is a professional etiquette based question (is it a right thing to ask for compensation?), the later, a company policy (will an organisation bear the cost? Can't answer this).
I would request the mods to reconsider the question in hand and see if this needs to be reopened.
After receiving a couple of comments on why this question is off topic, I would like to provide the following examples of how some questions can be categorised into either "company specific" or "seeking advice":
This is easily company specific. But the community feels ok to have this open. How can anyone tell if a company has a formula to calculate salaries is beyond me.
This (the highest voted question) is the best example for seeking advice on a situation at workplace. In fact, I can take the top 5 most voted questions (especially the rubber duck question!) and categorise them as 'advice seeking'.
I'm against closing questions that are advice seeking. I'm OK when someone states a legal premise or when someone goes for a specific situation which is localised to a company.
