New Labor Protection Act to Introduce Changes to Employer Regulations
A number of amendments have been introduced to Thailand’s Labor Protection Act (LPA) and are pending royal assent and publication in the Government Gazette. Notable changes include provisions aimed at protecting the benefits of specific groups or categories of employees, reducing requirements on registration of work rules by businesses, and protecting employees by helping them receive statutory severance at retirement. The details of each key change are outlined on the website below.
The amendments in the new LPA appear to be highly beneficial to both employers and employees. Nonetheless, employers in Thailand may wish to review their existing policies for compliance as the new provisions are likely to take effect in the very near future.
