Are management required to accept special assignments requiring travel and lodging away from home? In my particular case, I have work restrictions from an off the job injury. After many weeks of disability the company informed me they had residual work meeting my restrictions available at another UPS location. I was told I was being placed on special assignment for this work and was given the impression I had no choice but to accept it. Making matters worse is, I informed the company I have multiple follow-up doctor and physical therapy appointments weekly in my hometown. I was told I could find doctors in the town where I have been placed on special assignment.
