Abstract: Employee transfer is a management tool for distributing workforce to compliment the workload to meet demand at the right time and right place. Case law established that employer can invoke the mobility clause which specify that employees must work in any location as required by the employer as long as that discretion is exercised reasonably and not in such a way as to prevent the employee being able to carry out his/her part of the contract. With employees scattered all over the country with different talents, skills and knowledge employee transfer is inevitable. However, transfer of staff from one branch to another looks more of victimization than for the good of both organization and the staff as transfers are sometimes not fairly executed and also not based on the transfer policy. In an attempt to answer the related problems of transfer the study delved into the need for employee transfer. Both primary and secondary data were used to source information. The findings of the study revealed that transfer of employees has numerous benefits if handled well. The researcher recommended that the policy on transfer should be adhered and not be used as punishment tool for staff if the full benefit is to be reaped for the good of employees specifically, organization as a whole and economy in general.
