So it turns out my company may deny my trip. I don't really want to get into the reasons why, they are all largely baloney anyway.

Has anyone filed their conference expenses (cost, airfare, food, credit card interest, etc) who is NOT a contract/1099 worker? Is this even possible? I don't expect any CPAs here, but from a general options standpoint I was wondering if I could still go and plan to file as a training expense for my 2014 return.
