  • CA:Do I have to travel for work? California

    My boss told me to either travel for work,quit or I will be fired is that legal in California?

    If your employer/boss requires you to travel as part of your job, then you need to do so or you can be disciplined up to & including termination for not. (unless you have a binding employment contract that says you can't be required to travel)

    This would not be a wrongful termination if you were terminated for not traveling.

      With the qualification Betty mentioned, it is legal in every state.
      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.

          Your employer isn't harassing you by asking you repeatedly to do the job they want you to do. They decide the duties and if that includes travel, you can be expected to travel. It is no different than any other duty you are asked to perform. If you say no, you are risking the very real chance that your employer will terminate you for insubordination and failure to perform your duties as assigned.
          I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

            If he keeps calling you over & over & you keep saying no, after a while he is going to get tired of asking/calling & might very well terminate you.
