The Thai government has focused on updating the Labor Protection Act (LPA) this year. The LPA was first amended on January 24, 2017. More recently, on June 29, the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) has approved further amendments that are now pending Royal endorsement. With the goal of encouraging local businesses and foreign investors to protect employees, the amendments address issues that the LPA did not fully cover in its previous form.
The new provisions are likely to take effect in the very near future; employers should monitor developments for the effective date, and may wish to review their existing policies for compliance in advance.

Jönköping University educates many ambitious students and will have approximately 30 students enrolled at their partner universities in Bangkok next year. The students will combine academic studies at a Bangkok university while doing a final thesis or Internship project in collaboration with a company in the area. They are now looking for companies to host students.
To host a student is a chance to get fresh ideas into your business and expertise to solve relevant cases in your company.
The students will be available from late January until late May 2018 (2-3 days per week) and they will work individually or in groups of two during the internship. The students are aware of that they will not get salary for the thesis work nor the internship and they cover accommodation and food costs by themselves. The students already have VISA, accommodation, etc. Thus, your company will only invest in time.
The students are engineering students from the fields Production Management, Production Product Development, Mechanical Engineering, Logistics and Management Business and Industrial Engineering Business Management.
Thesis projects are on a higher academic level than the internship and the students must perform an investigation and present ideas for improvements of a process, workplace or product/service.
For more information, please see the enclosed document.
