When the business need is a one-day event, overnight stays within 60 miles of the contractor’s home or workstation, whichever is less, are not reimbursable.
When a work assignment to the field will require more than one consecutive day’s effort, an overnight stay is reimbursable for destinations 60 or more miles away from either the contractor’s home or workstation (whichever is less) only for the consecutive night(s) during the business need.
The nights prior to the business starting and after the business has been completed are not approved for overnight reimbursement under 60 miles from either the employee’s home or workstation (whichever is less).
When making hotel reservations, you are required to book at the Michigan state rate of $85/night (new rate as of 1/1/2019) + hotel taxes. If the state rate is not available, you must receive prior approval for a higher room rate. A copy of the detailed hotel bill is required for reimbursement.
No incidentals will be reimbursed (housekeeping tips, movies, fitness club, etc.).
