Help for Home-Based Workers

Bangkok Post, Corporate Counsellor Column

The Act Protecting Home-Based Workers will go into effect on May 15, 2011. In recent years, the employment landscape has dramatically changed from employees working at an employer’s premises to outsourcing work and hiring outside personnel to work from home. This allows employers to cut labor costs and avoid complying with Thai labor laws. Without an employer-employee contractual relationship, there is no protection for workers hired to perform the same work as those working directly for employers.
