14.I Remote Location Compensation

Whenever faculty members are required to establish temporary residence at a remote location for extended periods of time in order to carry out their University teaching or administrative duties, they will be eligible for remote location compensation. In determining the amount of compensation, consideration will be given to extraordinarily difficult living or working conditions, excessive physical hardship, notably hazardous conditions and duties that require substantial amounts of irregular, unscheduled work. (SPG 201.51) See also Chapter 17 “University Travel and Reimbursement.”
