    From my current contract

    "Your normal place of work will be at the Company's premises from time to time, presently located at .........
    You may be required to work at any other location, either in the United Kingdom or abroad (including but not limited to, visiting clients' premises or the premises of third parties) as may be reasonably required by the company and/or for the proper performance and exercise of your duties."

    It;s some 20+ years ago but the last head office move I was involved in, we had a cut off of 50 mins excess travelling time (paid for up to 3 years - those were the days!) to be considered for redundancy. So if, say office was in central London and you commuted in from Canterbury but the move was to Milton Keynes, that would be just about considered, but if you lived in Islington you wouldn t be. If you already lived in or around Milton Keynes you were quids in.

    If you decided not to move, the starting position was your contractual notice, not voluntary redundancy on enhanced terms.

    I've been there around 5 1/2 years.

Given that I imagine you are on a decent salary if you are travelling into London and staying there Monday-Friday and the issues that make your case far from a nailed on certainty (I'd tend towards you losing it, to be honest, though I am no expert), is it worth worrying about? I'd concentrate efforts on finding another job and do do the (paid for) travelling for a couple of weeks if I had to.

    If you had a rock solid case it might be different.

    Your other option is simply to call their bluff, refuse to move and see if they let you work out of the current office. But you have to be prepared for dismissal in that case. I don't have anything like the knowledge of your circumstances to know whether that has any chance of working.
