Not in my current employee handbook (red face). So, very good question that I will "me too" on. Thanks for putting this out there.

There is a "tool" you can use to create a policy with certain items included (or excluded) as you see fit. Just remember if you are going to have policy, you will want to be clear about who is eligible and if you want to have clawback language in there in case the new hire does not work out.

Hope that helps. There are other examples on Google if you search around.

Here's another sample from SHRM

Concur with Ted and would add that if you do move employees around often I would also supplement an effective policy with providing the employees with some cost-of-living information so they are well informed about the financial expectations of their relocation. ERI ( has such a product and many companies that have "mobility" as part of their talent management provide such supplemental information.

Hope this helps.
