I was just hired for my first full-time position since graduating from University. The location is 15 minutes away from my parent’s house, and I just moved back in with them from college to accept/commute to this office. My written offer letter stated that I would be reporting to my local office.
Not even two weeks into my employment, a few Chiefs asked my boss if he would be ok with them “borrowing” me for a project, which would involve commuting 50 miles from my home for the next two months.
I told them, quite frankly, that I wasn’t hired to work at their new office, and I wouldn’t be able to commute there every day. I mentioned that I’d be able to commute once a week and work remotely from the original office, and that I would do everything necessary to overcome the learning curve and issues that come with telecommuting.
Am I being unreasonable, and is this something they can terminate me for?
