UNC Charlotte Strategy: physical location of workforce

  • UNC Charlotte has a strong preference for a North Carolina workforce. Hiring preference should be given to employees living and working in-state when all other factors are equal.
    • As a North Carolina entity, UNC Charlotte has a responsibility to provide NC public sector jobs when possible.
    • This applies to students, including graduate assistants, and temporary employees.

UNC Charlotte Moving Expense Procedures


Moving expenses for new hires at UNC Charlotte can either be reimbursed using State funds or provided via an allowance using Discretionary funds. These procedures outline the difference between the two methods and how to request a reimbursement or allowance. All moving support from the university is fully taxable to employees.

Only one of the following two types of funds may be used to pay for moving expenses:

Salary Overpayments Form

Salary Overpayments Form
Use this form to report an employee salary overpayment. Note that departments are responsible for informing current and former employees that they were overpaid. The department is also expected to let such employees know that Payroll will be in touch with them regarding the balance owed. The employee should be expecting an overpayment invoice BEFORE Payroll makes contact with them.
