So you are saying they can tell me out of 5 others that I need to travel 60miles more prer day to another office without getting paid for the travel costs. If I were to turn that down, can they turn me down for unemployment benefits?
First, if other employees are being paid for the travel time and you are not, you may be able to better negotiate to have payment given to you, especially if you are being singled out because of your race, gender or age.
If you are laid off and its not for cause you would qualify for benefits.
Noone else is getting travel expense, I am going to turn down the 60 mile commute and am afraid they are going to make me go anyways. If they do make me, can I say no and stay in my old office? I dont care if they fire me, I am just worried I wont get my unemployment benefits.
