The employment contract

The rights of people working in Thailand and the obligations of the employers are described in the Labor Protection Act of 1998, the Acts cover Thai and foreign employees working for companies doing business in Thailand. There are various penalties, both civil and criminal, for employers that fail to adhere to the rules.

This contract initiates certain rights and obligations for both parties. The employee has a duty to render service. The employer has a duty to pay remuneration for such service. Under Thai law, the remuneration can only be in the form of money or valuable items and has to be paid in a fixed period (daily, weekly, monthly, or at the time of service).
