Participants at CAUT meetings and events, where CAUT underwrites the cost to attend, may apply for reimbursement of costs associated with providing alternative care for dependants who rely primarily upon them for physical care.
Notice of such arrangements, including an estimate of the costs, must be made to the CAUT office at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the event on the form circulated with the meeting or workshop materials.
If requested, the CAUT office will assist in locating care providers at the meeting or event location. However, all contractual arrangements must be made by the individual directly with such providers and CAUT bears no responsibility or liability for the actions of caregivers.
Approved by the CAUT Council, May 2008.
