The university financially assists new faculty and administrative staff members in relocating to Clark County by providing either:
A lump-sum payment of $800 for in-state relocations and $1,200 for out-of-state relocations.
- Reimbursement of 50 percent of the actual expenses incurred (up to a maximum reimbursement of $4,000) in moving furniture and household items. Receipts must be submitted, and items such as meals, lodging and transportation for the employee and his or her family are excluded.
In recognition of diverse personal circumstances, the lump-sum payment is intended to help a new employee offset moving expenses or other miscellaneous relocation expenses such as utility hookups or driver's license registration. Under the latter option, receipts must be submitted, and as stated above, items such as the transportation of the individual(s) and his or her family, meals and lodging en route are not covered.
New faculty and administrative staff who are awarded a full-time, regular position and who are moving within (45) forty-five miles from Wittenberg are eligible for this benefit.
To claim reimbursement for relocation expenses, the individual should submit a Relocation Request for Payment Form to the Human Resources Department. All applicable income and employment taxes will be deducted from the payment, and the payment will be reported as taxable wages on the annual Form W-2. For tax purposes, the employee should retain documentation of actual moving expenses.
