I belong to a team where some of the members are expats. Recently, one of the members made the request to work from his own country appealing that if the request was not accepted, he will resign. I'm in a similar situation and as a plus, I have my son living in my home country.
Before I was even given the chance to ask for similar contract change I was told that my colleague's situation is an exception and that the company is not open to more exceptions.
I would like to know if I should insist on this subject taking it to senior management or CEO or just resign and try to find a position in my country.
current work location is EU state.
