Remote work expenses during COVID-19

Jul 27, 2020

We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to work remotely have financial implications. As a result of working remotely, some Pacific employees may have incurred additional costs to their personal cell phones and/or internet services.

If you have experienced work-related increases in the cost of cell phone minutes, cell phone, data plans or internet data services since March 15, 2020, you may follow these steps to seek reimbursement:

  1. Discuss your request with your manager/supervisor to obtain agreement that your job duties, while working remotely, have required additional cell phone minutes/data and/or additional internet expense.
  2. Complete this form.
  3. Attach a dated receipt or invoice to the form clearly identifying the new expense (redact any sensitive personal information).
  4. When the remote work expense form is completed, complete a reimbursement form and send the packet to Accounts Payable. Accounts Payable will not process a reimbursement if the form and receipts/invoices are not attached.

If you have question, please contact Accounts Payable (209.946.2156 or
