If my company is planning on moving out of the city that I work at, are they required to let us know a move date?

Since there are been rumor of them trying to find a new location but nothing has been told to us. They are slowly taking things out of our current work location and still no date or anything of that nature. Do I have a right to know a date so if I don’t want to go i have enough time to find another job? Do they have to compensate for gas, hourly wages if we deicide to go?

Ordinarily custom and practice in the employment industry is that an employer gives notice to all employees of a move date months before such happens. However, such is not a legal requirement under the laws of any state in this country.

Given your suspicions of a move date, I suggest that you begin an active attempt to seek a new job.
