Information for Reimbursing Expenses incurred by employees working remotely during COVID-19

Monday, June 1, 2020

Queen’s University is committed to supporting employees who are required to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Departmental reimbursement is available for the following allowable expenses:

  • Stationery and office supplies (e.g. paper, pens, highlighters)
  • Overcharges for excess internet and cell phone usage required in order to complete work
  • Long distance charges for work-related calls

Purchases must be approved in advance and may, as applicable, become the property of the university.

Research expenses: In the case of expenses charged to a research project, the approval by the supervisor will confirm that these expenditures are directly related to research.  Eligibility of expenditures to a research project are subject to the sponsor policies and guidelines.

*Please note, office furniture is not an allowable expense.
