Based on my past experiences, I have a strong feeling that he will definitely ask me to travel along with him. How can I deny when he asks me to travel? First of all, this is not sure yet, so it's not a fact that he will ask you to come with him (don't torture yourself with things that may not even happen).

I would answer your question with no, but practically yes for what I believe you're asking to do. What I interpreted from your question: You want to "work from home" away from the UK.

I'd say, before jumping into the discussion about "rights", you should ask these questions to the concerned people (your reporting manager/ HR / Travel department PoC) and try to get an answer. Most likely in the present situation with COVID around, organizations are flexible enough to provide the required security / coverage or flexibility to ...

So what I'm looking for here is whether they have any concrete legal basis to tell me that I can't do this. You seem to be under the assumption that "Work-From-Home" is some exceptional, never seen before "get out of jail free" situation where you can do whatever is not illegal. It's not. Your employer can make you provide your work at a location they set. ...

My employer requires that I can only work “from home” or more like “not from the office” if it is a secure place where I can guarantee that nobody can access my work. Like a place where I can lock things In the night, no uncontrolled visitors etc. Working from a hotel room would not be acceptable. And I need halfway decent internet access, and couldn’t go to ...
