New hires who are relocating to join the University may be considered for assistance and reimbursement of moving expenses. This is negotiated on an individual basis.

The Human Resources Department will assist relocating employees to facilitate their move. Such assistance will include an explanation of the University's relocation policy and what services, if any, are available.

Eligible employees may be reimbursed for reasonable expenses of moving which could include packing, insuring, shipping, storing, and unpacking of household goods and personal effects, and transportation of employee and family at the time of the move within six months of the relocation. Generally, reimbursement up to 50% of an employee's moving expenses (to a maximum of $1,500) may be provided upon approval by the appropriate Vice President or the President.

Misericordia University will require refunds for payments made for relocation expenses from employees who resign within one year of the effective date of hire. If necessary, the University will withhold any such amount from the employee's salary.

The University complies with existing Internal Revenue Code. For further information, contact the Controller.
