When facing unexpected difficulties due to natural disasters, fires, dangerous epidemics, taking measures to prevent and remedy labor accidents, occupational diseases, electricity and water incidents or due to production and business needs then the employer is entitled to temporarily transfer the employee to do a job different from the labor contract but must not exceed 60 working days in a cumulative year; If the employee is transferred to another job which is different from the employment contract more than 60 working days in a year, it shall only be done when the employee agrees in writing.

The employee is transferred to a different job from the employment contract paid according to the new job. If the salary of the new job is lower than the salary of the old job, the old job’s salary is kept for 30 working days. The salary for the new job must be at least 85% of the salary of the previous job but not lower than the minimum wage.
An employee who disagrees with a temporary job different from the employment contract for more than 60 working days in a cumulative period of one year but must stop working, the employer must pay a termination salary as follows:
– In case of job stoppage of 14 working days or less, the agreed severance pay is not lower than the minimum wage;
