Sorry but I know of no way to do this at all.

I don't even think there is an event logged when you change IP addresses in the first place?

You can write a small script which should constantly (for example once in a minute or in ahour)  resolve the DNS/Netbios name of his PC to IP, and compare with a previous lookup result. When it changed - its up to you to set up a trigger. For example - an email or so.

or, much better, remove him from local admins group. I just cannot imagine that  users will change their IPs or delete event logs and the administrator must tolerate it.

Agreed!!

I may have misunderstood the question, I was assuming you meant you need to know when it was last changed rather than how to audit this change moving forward... O.o

And to add, any alteration of company equipment to include computers is normally in violation of security training or documents the user signed.  If the user is consistently in the wrong, those policies can be used to terminate (make unemployed, not...well...you know) them.
