  • Ca- Can employer require work at different location? California

    I am the General manager of a sandwich shop of which was recently purchased by a new owner who also owns another shop across town. This new owner is telling me that I must require my old and new employees to work both locations. I can see the requiring all new employees which they are told upon hiring. However can the owner require this of old employees, of which were not hired with that stipulation?

    Yes, unless there is a binding employment contract to the contrary.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      Even considering half of my employees are without reliable transportation or minors? Half walk or take the bus.

        Legally, yes.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          If you are looking for a law that prohibits an employer from requiring employees to work at multiple locations unless it was agreed to at hire, I'm sorry but there simply isn't one. The employer may legally require any employee to work at any location that suits the employer's needs or wants as long as the employee does not have a legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA that specifically says otherwise.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
