I work for a fitness company as a personal trainer. When I join last year Nov, i was sent to a gym that the company manage for a corporate client. Now, one year later, the company wants to transfer me to their own gym because:1. The corporate gym revenue is not as good as expected and after restructuring of staffing, they could not afford my salary. 2. There is a vacancy in their own gym and almost all my employment terms and conditions are the same, except now I have a 6 day week instead of 5 day week at the corporate gym. My question is: can I refuse to be transfered? I do know that they are looking to hire someone to replace me in th corporate gym but the salary is about 30% less than mine. Thank you.

I think you can pay a personal visit to the Labour Department and discuss the issues with the officer there with more details. In my opinion, the employer has the right to deploy their employees to areas where their services are more suited.
