thank you- very helpful. How does this sound to initiate the paper trail?
My understanding when I accepted the offer for this position in May 2011 was that my tasks could be accomplished via telecommuniting, which was acceptable to me as a single father with three school age kids. My understanding is that the telecommute policy has changed for our business division which requires employees to be at the Cypress worksite on Katella Blvd. for at least two days per week. I am unable to adapt to the new policy as I need to drop off kids for two start times (8am and 9am) then pick kids up from school weekdays at 2pm and 3pm. In between are early pick ups when kids are sick or for doctor/dental or othrodonist vists, then drop offs for after school activities such as soccer and gymnastics.I am willing and able to perform the tasks required of this position in a continued full-time telecommuting capacity, however I cannot ajust to the new policy.sincerely,mjb
just one more question... if they propose a pay cut if I don't accept new policy and then I resign. Would that strengthen or weaken my case for justifiable cause for voluntary resigntation?
