The court is permitted to set reasonable conditions of someone's bail. Most courts set conditions that the defendant is restricted in their movement that can include not leaving the country, not leaving the state, not leaving the county and even not leaving their house! This person should have been provided (in writing) a list of bail conditions. Those conditions should answer your question about leaving the state, but to be safe I think this person should get written permission from the court (it is done all the time) before leaving the jurisdiction. As long as they are not charged with a major or violent crime they should have no problem getting permission to leave the state for work.
