Ashutosh Thakre is right--Why should the employee suffer for the callous attitude of the office?
Pl involve the Head Office to resolve the matter--even then IF the units hesitate to share the costs, his salary in the intervening period [whatever it may be] should be to the account of HO.
Also, take this opportunity to make the necessary changes in the Transfer Policy of the Company--to handle such scenarios in the future.
