My partner works at an audit company and sometimes has to travel to clients. These are usually near where she works and does not significantly increase her travel time. Occasionally they will find a hotel for her to stay in.
She has just been told to go to a client 2.5hours from where she lives and has not been booked to a hotel.
This is over an hour each way more than her usual commute and will mean she's travelling for at least 5 hours each day for 8 days.
She would (unhappily) stay in a hotel but has been told no. Is there any legal protection for this in the UK?
I've tried looking online but I'm not sure how to word what I'm looking for.
