As a general rule, AUI does not reimburse the travel expenses of an employee’s spouse, with occasional exception if approved by the President and/or Board Chair to meet social expectations of stakeholders outside of the U.S. and for other AUI business-related reasons. Such exceptions should be rare and approved in advance. All spousal expense information including amount and type of expenses, the business purpose being claimed, the specific activities/role of the spouse in furtherance of an AUI business purpose, must be submitted to the Controller. The Controller will determine the taxability of the expenses to the employee, as necessary. An annual report of all spousal travel activity will be submitted to the Audit Committee Chair.
