Can my employer make me work away from home?
Hereof, can you be forced to work from home?
In general, you can't be forced to work from home without your agreement. Some employment contracts include written terms known as 'mobility clauses', which allow the employer to make unilateral changes to your work location, usually after consulting with you.
Also Know, can my employer make me work outside my contracted hours? "Yes," your employer can require you to work overtime and can fire you if you refuse, according to the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA (29 U.S.C. § 201 and following), the federal overtime law. The FLSA sets no limits on how many hours a day or week your employer can require you to work.
Considering this, what am I entitled to when working away from home?
A Living Away From Home Allowance is intended to compensate you for expenses incurred whilst you are working away on secondment or on a contract. These expenses include such costs as accommodation and meals. LAFHAs can also be payments to compensate you for other disadvantages such as isolation.
Can an employer require you to make up time?
The FLSA does not require an employer to consider any of this time as hours worked or to give you show-up pay. However, some employers and employees have informal or contractual agreements (Collective Bargaining Agreements) which require a set number of hours be considered hours worked.
