Are child care expenses reimbursable while employees are travelling on University business?

The FAST Team has encountered an increasing number of inquiries regarding the eligibility of reimbursement for child care expenses incurred while employees are travelling.

When on University business, employees should not be out-of-pocket for any additional child care costs that are deemed necessary and reasonable by the approver. 

Examples of reimbursable additional costs related to child care as a result of University business travel:

  • nursing mother must travel with her child to a conference
  • single parent must pay additional child care or airfare costs for the child
