I work a housing authority which manages another authority through an Inter Local Services Agreement. I was recently told that after the New Year I am to vacate my office and will be moving from Full Time to the Authority we manage through a contract. I am still a member of and on the payroll of the main housing authority. I have no say in this matter. Is this lawful?
Unless you are covered by civil service laws/union agreements or some special statute, maybe. It will take research to examine your position and its exact status.

As a general rule, management can legitimately set your days and hours of work and where you will do it. There are some exceptions, such as when a union contract or a personal contract says otherwise. You may wish to invest in a consultation with an experienced employment lawyer to see if those exceptions - or any other - apply to you. Good luck.
