This procedure describes the process by which moving expense reimbursements should be requested. Management supervisors are urged to use moving expense reimbursements as a recruitment tool for the recruitment of out-of-area applicants for department head, director and division dean positions.
Once a new employee is hired, the management supervisor is responsible for initiating the moving expense reimbursement process for eligible employees, in accordance with college expense reimbursement guidelines (see Travel/Expense Reimbursement). All moving expenses submitted for reimbursement must be documented. Reimbursements will be charged to a central account administered by Human Resources.
Under this procedure, new department heads, directors and division chairs who must relocate in order to accept college employment shall be eligible for reimbursement of up to $1000 of actual moving expenses. Additional reimbursement may be made to employees in these categories in special circumstances with the prior approval of the college president.
Questions about a new employee's eligibility for this reimbursement shall be referred to the appropriate vice president.
