Very interesting question. Based on the initial facts and circumstances, I would be tempted to take a position in your favor.

I think a case could be made that you could present to your CPA to deduct these expenses as part of your employee business expenses that are subject to 2% AGI limit.

Remember this deduction would be taken on Schedule A.
