    Managing Home Leave Policy when no one can travel

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had an ongoing impact to travel around the world. For global mobility programs that support home leave travel costs, such as airfare, there are several potential approaches for employees who are still in the assignment location, but are unable to travel. 

    Whether programs provide a cash allowance or reimburse travel costs, they must decide if they should continue paying the allowance, and if they should provide for additional home leaves once travel is possible to balance out the missed home leave caused by the pandemic.
