There have been major changes to the Thai labour or employment laws since 2017. Such changes concern employers obligations regarding human-trafficking, employee rights in retirement and removal of various requirements regarding the reporting of work rules to the Thai Labor Department.

This year, the government also intends to introduce further amendments that would have a significant impact on the termination of employees and their rights, calculation of severance payments and leave entitlements.

This event will navigate attendees through the myriad of changes and proposed amendments to Thai labour laws.
