    domestic

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether the word "domestic" is used correctly:

    The employee agrees that the employer may instruct him/her to go on a business trip (domestic or abroad).

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: domestic

    at home or abroad.

    "Domestic" is used in the sense of internal affairs of a nation or it relates to the home or family.

    You use domestic as in:

    tax is a domestic issue e.g.

    domestic happiness, domestic servant etc.

    Re: domestic

    The employee is aware and agrees that his duties may include business travel, domestic and/or international, and that the employer may so instruct him/her as required.

    Re: domestic

    So you can say "domestic" in the meaning of travelling in your own country, David?

    Thanks.

    Re: domestic

    domestic travel versus international travel
    Domestic Policy versus Foreign Policy

    Re: domestic

    Hi

    There is my 2 penny contribution.

    A domestic trip is a trip made by a resident of a given country within his/her

    residential country.

    Occasionally about my travels, domestic and abroad, or the things I eat. ...

    Regards.

    V.

    Hi, Vil!

    Thanks for adding your two cents worth of clarification!
    It's good to see that you are still remaining active in the forum!

    How are you doing, my friend? Has spring arrived in Bulgaria, yet?

    Cheers,
