There is no proper antecedent for "their".

In C the meaning of the sentence is not clear
The intended meaning - Employees are not willing to accept the duties but C says employees are not willing to accept the extended hours.

I agree with your answer but I am not satisfied with the reason of omission of C.
C is not out because of pronoun ambiguity. Their is clearly refers to "many employees" and it is logical antecedent of their.
Most probably, the reason for omission of C is that duties are not causing resistance. And C is changing the meaning of statement.

Besides this, I have a doubt here in D.
Does GMAT allow addition of new word in correct choice?
Addition of happy!

EMPOWERgmatVerbal EMPOWERgmatRichC Even I have the same question. You often say that verb-ing in the middle of the sentence in mostly wrong and must be replaced by to-verb, i rejected D only for this reason
