Transfer is an incidence of service and as such the personal inconvenience, if any caused to the employee can not be a valid reason to agitate.. Therefore, every employee is bound to obey the orders of transfer. If the orders of transfer is as per the provisions of the standing orders or service regulations of the employer, such refusal to comply with the order can be treated as a punishable misconduct apart from non-payment of salary/wages for the period of unauthorised absence on the ground of refusal to report for duty in the transferred place/post. If the employee feels that the orders of transfer is a measure of victimisation or colorable exercise of power or not authorised under the standing orders, he can raise an industrial dispute u/s 2k of the Industrial Disputes Act,1947 through his Trade Union.
