Employees may be able to deduct their work related expenses as an itemized deduction.  These expenses must be unreimbursed expenses that are ordinary and necessary to their work as an employee.  According to IRS, an ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in the industry.  A necessary expense is appropriate and helpful to a business.
