I took a job in Tallahassee. What are standard moving fees I should be paid or reimbursed?
Well, I can't say there is an overwhelmingly standard here as with other items, such as CME or CE. Those are easy - $3,000 is still standard. Moving expenses are probably paid about 50% of the time, and in most cases, simply deducted from Base Compensation. Oftentimes the moving expense paid is recoupable if you do not stay employed for a mandatory period - likely 24 months.
if you are moving for a position, I recommend asking for not less than $10,000 as reimbursement for moving expenses. All the respective employer can do is say is no!
