An individual employee can be served a subpoena at their residence or at work; there is no requirement to send it to the home office.

Doesn't make clear do I need to send the subpoena to her boss, who will determine if the subpoena will be served on her?

Thank you

A subpoena is a court order so it is served to whom it is addressed;

so if for example an individual has personal knowledge of a situation, that person would be served.
If it is an employment situation the employee can then notify the employer and the employer may wish to hire an attorney to review the subpoena and see if there are grounds to object.

But an employer does not supersede the power of the court so for example if the employer instructs employee not to respond, the court can sanction that employee.
