    A company cannot normally decree where an employee lives.
    It sometimes happens here because the companies do provide transportation facility to employees. If any candidate lives in an area where they do not provide the transportation facility then they ask that employee to relocate if they want to avail themself of this facility.

    In the UK, the idea that a company can tell me to move house simply so that I can get a company bus to work doesn't make sense.

    They don't get picked up by bus. You are picked up and dropped at home daily by a car. They don't want you to restrict from travelling any other way. If you can commute it is fine. It usually doesn't happen that company asks you to relocate.

    Does it happen often enough, and do you have to discuss it with native English speakers often enough, to make it worth anyone's while continuing with this thread?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
