My work is paying for me to go to a conference in another city. They've booked the flights et cetera, so they've already invested a lot of money in this.
It's now just a few days out from the conference and the city has had a lot of earthquakes in the last few days. The media is saying it's relatively safe to travel to the area, and the conference organisers are not cancelling the conference, but I'm not convinced of my safety.
Is it reasonable to refuse to go to the conference? Is it ethical for the company to insist I go?
