A Chinese company moved its office to the mountains to force employees to quit. The executives did not want to pay compensation to the employees.

According to a former employee of the company named Chan, the company's head office (the name of the company is not given in the article) in Xi'an was moved from the business center to a mountainous area. It can only be reached by taxi for $8 one way or by bus, which runs once every three hours. Moreover, public transportation does not go directly to the new office - employees had to walk another three kilometers along mountain trails, Scmp.com writes.

The working conditions at the new location were terrible. The neighborhood was crawling with stray dogs, and the women of the team had to walk to a neighboring village to use a public toilet. According to Chan, the management warned them that they would have to work at the new location until next year. So 14 out of more than 20 employees handed in their resignations.

Four days later, they were surprised to find that the company had returned to the business center and was actively recruiting. A representative of the company denied all accusations and said that it was a short move, allegedly for a week, due to renovations at the headquarters.

Moreover, the company is considering a lawsuit against former employees for spreading defamatory information.
