Re-branding of company

I started work in BPO company in August, 2018 but In February, 2019 my company re-brand it self and change their name. The company did not take employees in confidence about re-branding neither told the employees regarding re-branding. I am confused that my employment contract with previous name of company still exist after re-branding and/or should I ask for new employment contract under new name of company.

Rebranding and renaming has NO effect on the validity of contracts, any more than a person who had a mortgage or car loan or a service agreement with some contractor can get out of those agreements or obligations by changing his/her name (such as when getting married). If you are still working for the same entity, even if it renamed itself, the contracts(s) are still valid and enforceable.
