I am a Canadian citizen on TN status currently living in the US. When applied for the TN status my employer mentioned the work location as Scottsdale AZ. Now, after having worked in Scottsdale for a few months my employer wants my service in Atlanta GA. Can I simply relocate to Atlanta GA and continue work for the same employer? If not what additional steps need to taken in order to work for the same employer in a new location?
TNs for Canadians are not location specific. You can change work locations, as long as you are with the same employer and doing they same type of work, without a new filing.
No. It is employer specific, though, and also subject to INA 214b.

No. TNs for Canadians are not location specific, but are "employer specific". Thus, you can be asked to work in different locations by the same employer, for the same job position/duties as in the original petition, without necessitating a new petition filing on the part of the employer.
