Our new MOU provides for a Professional Development Allowance every fiscal year. The terms of the Allowance are contained in the MOU, Article 31, Section D. The Allowance for the remaining half of this Fiscal Year, January through June 2020, is reimbursable. The remaining two fiscal years of this MOU will be a combination of both reimbursement and cash advance payments.
Expenses that qualify for reimbursement are costs of MCLE programs, as well as travel and per diems if the program is outside of Los Angeles County. In addition, our new MOU has expanded reimbursable expenses to include professional memberships, books and educational materials, legal software, and certification exam fees.
Please be judicious when choosing lodging and which food/drink expenses you submit for reimbursement.
