This policy contains information on protective shoe reimbursement.
In the past Wisconsin Statutes allowed for an allowance annually for employees required to wear protective shoes in performance of their assigned work duties.
With HR Design, there is currently no UW-Madison policy regarding protective shoe allowance or reimbursement.
The College has decided to create a policy of reimbursing staff for the purchase of protective shoes. Each staff member required to wear protective shoes in the performance of their assigned work duties can be reimbursed up to $160 per pair of protective shoes once every three years. Reimbursement will be funded on the same fund the individual is payrolled.
Request for reimbursement needs to be made by submitting the receipt through the L&S Business Office.
