MLA Policy on the Reimbursement of Job Seekers

The following policies were recommended by the Delegate Assembly in December 1999 and approved by the MLA Executive Council in February 2000.

It is MLA policy that:
  • Departments that require that job applicants send their application materials by express courier reimburse those applicants for the cost of such shipment; and
  • Departments that require multiple copies of writing samples and other application materials from job applicants reimburse applicants for the cost of duplicating their writing samples and other materials; and
  • Departments that require books will return them to the applicant; and
  • Departments that invite job applicants for on-campus interviews reimburse those applicants who accept such invitations for the costs of travel and accommodations incurred when visiting the campus for interviews.
