Trends and predictions
How would you describe the current employment landscape and prevailing trends in your jurisdiction? Are any new developments anticipated in the next 12 months, including any proposed legislative reforms?

Answer ... Employees in Thailand are largely protected under Thai labour laws, which are considered public policies – a minimum standard for employment conditions in Thailand. Where an employment contract offers inferior benefits to an employee, the stronger benefits under Thai law will apply.

The Thai labour courts are generally employee friendly and usually rule in favour of employees.

We do not anticipate upcoming major amendments to the labour law regime in Thailand in the next 12 months, except for a possible increase in the minimum daily wage rates (as a result of campaign promises made by various political parties during the general election which was held earlier this year).
