If the company in China moves to other places and the employees are not willing to continue the contract, should the employer pay economic compensation?

If the objective conditions on which the labor contract is concluded have changed significantly so that the labor contract cannot be performed, and if after negotiation between the employer and the employee, the employer fails to reach an agreement on changing the contents of the labor contract, the employer may notify the employee in writing 30 days in advance or pay an additional month’s salary to the employee before terminating the labor contract and paying economic compensation.

If the company wants to move to other provinces and cities, it is generally considered that the labor contract cannot be continued, which belongs to “significant change in objective situation”.

In this case, if the employee is unwilling to go, that is, both parties cannot reach an agreement on changing the labor contract, the employer can terminate the labor contract and pay economic compensation at the same time.
