My employer just release a news that company will move to another state (30 miles away) and the move date is Mid-February. The employer doesn't plan to have any compensation for employee's commute cost, gas, or salary. Is this reasonable? Is there something we can do as employee? Thank you so much for your help
Unless your contract, whether individual or collective, has a clause requiring this compensation you are out of luck. Sometimes one of the “benefits” for a company’s move is to leave behind workers who are not 100% committed to the company in that they would not move or commute a long way to keep their job. 30 miles isn’t very unusual where I live.
In the U.S. most employment is on an "at will" basis. That means you can quit anytime you like without notice and you can be fired at any time for almost any reason or no reason, as long as the reason is not one of the protected reasons.
