The Thai government has focused on updating the Labor Protection Act (LPA) this year. The LPA was first amended on Jan. 24, 2017. More recently, on June 29, the National Legislative Assembly 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.
Important provisions in the amendments to the LPA include:
--Announce the implementation of the work rules within 15 days from the date on which the employer has 10 or more employees, or amended work rules.
--Keep work rules or amendments to work rules on the premises or at their office at all times.
--Openly post work rules or amendments at the employees' workplace (the employer may also post the work rules or amendments in electronic format for ease of access and review by employees).
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.
