7.4 Employee Recruitment (Revised 11-01-2017)
Travel for prospective employees and their families must be authorized by the school or department in order to be reimbursed. Reimbursement for authorized travel expenses such as transportation, hotel, and meals incurred during the recruitment process are not taxable to the prospective employee. Prospective employees are not covered by university travel insurance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, travel expenses are considered to be "Moving Expenses" (see 188.8.131.52 Moving Expenses). The cost of travel while in "moving status" must be in accordance with the university travel policy.
