LSU's Relocation Incentive 

New employees may contact their hiring department for more information about eligibility and how to take advantage of the services offered. Any employee who receives a relocation incentive must sign a Relocation Agreement, which stipulates that part or all of the payment will be returned if the employee does not continue employment with the hiring department for at least two years, unless advanced administrative approvals are obtained. Hiring departments may contact their designated Talent Acquisition Partner in the Office of Human Resource Management with any questions at 225-578-8200.
