Part three on the legal implications of staff relocation.

Step 4: What about employees who are reluctant to relocate?

If an employee is reluctant to move voluntarily, the employer will have two main options: either to make the employee redundant and make a redundancy payment; or to rely on a contractual mobility clause to instruct the employee to move to the new workplace, and if they still refuse, dismiss the employee for refusal to obey a lawful order (which is an act of misconduct).

However, whichever option is chosen, the employer must follow a fair process and will be exposed to the risk of claims (including unfair dismissal).

If the employee has been dismissed for failing to comply with the instruction to move to a new workplace, the tribunal will consider whether the employee was acting reasonably in refusing to relocate.
