Also have this issue with just one sim. I moved Wolfgang Munch in with my sim, and he's in the criminal career now. An hour or two after he leaves for work, the message pops up.

I also have this problem. It appears to be directly related to a similar problem.

 

In my household of two Sims, if Sim B goes to work, and Sim A is either at home or at work, I'll frequently (once per shift) get a message asking me if Sim B should leave work, although I haven't selected anything that should cause him to do so. This is the least-annoying version of the problem, since if I choose "No," he works through the rest of his day.

 

This is likely related to a couple of similar problems:

 

1. If Sim B goes to work, and then Sim A travels to a different lot, Sim B will return home without giving me the option to cancel, also losing income and work performance.

2. If Sim B is asleep and Sim A travels to a different lot, Sim B will prematurely wake up, and Care for Needs won't cause him to go back to bed (the icon never shows him sleeping,) regardless of how tired he is.

 

Unlike most of the other reports here, neither Sim has anything to do with Del Sol Valley; I've actively avoided that neighborhood. Both Sims reside in Strangerville. Sim A was a new household generated by me. Sim B was an NPC I'd generated using Play With Genetics (created a son for Ted and Meredith Roswell.) Also, the Acting career is not involved. Sim A is in the Military career, and Sim B is in the Tech Guru career.

I've seen this issue too recently.  The sim is a musician, about level 6 or  7, and when it started had no fame. He lives in Newcrest and was created in CAS. As has been said if he's at work and his wife is at home,  I get the message asking if he should leave work. I haven't seen any issue with him not going to work when other sims in the household are traveling, but it could be I either don't remember or thought I must have accidentally hit something.

EA Sims Team

Hello.

 

We've narrowed this down to occurring with Sims that have a residence key and are living with the Sim that gave them the key.  While the team looks into this, a workaround is to take back the residence key from the Sim, which should make the Sim no longer want to leave work early.

 

If anyone is seeing this issue (without mods) with a Sim that does not have a residence key, please let me know.  It would also be helpful if you could send me a private message with a link to your affected save file(s).  Instructions here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/INFORMATION-How-to-Send-User-Files-to-The-Sims-4-Team/m-p/6065...

Can confirm that taking back the residence key from the sim fixes the issue.

 

I stumbled across this answer on reddit by chance, tried it out, and have not encountered this over-eager stalking behaviour since!

Hi @Elegantblkchina 

 

have you tried the suggestion above to revoke the key ? Does that work ?
