Labor and employment issues are always among the top concerns of manufacturers. Regardless of whether they produce automotive parts, chemicals, consumer electronics, textiles, or other products, manufacturers face these issues on a daily basis and throughout the entire employment relationship lifecycle—the initial hiring process, work assignments, wages, benefits, promotions, employee discipline, collective bargaining, and termination. The complex legal and regulatory environment presents a challenging landscape for employers in Thailand.
To help answer questions on employer-employee relations, Tilleke & Gibbins is partnering with Hemaraj Land and Development Pcl to host a seminar for companies located in Hemaraj’s industrial estates. Free for Hemaraj customers, the “Labor and Employment Law: Best Practices for Manufacturers” seminar will provide insights into key issues such as:
- Changing terms and conditions of employment
- Responding to labor demands
- Negotiating with trade unions
- Minimizing the risk of unfair labor practice claims
- Avoiding employment-related litigation risks
- Winning in the labor courts
The Thai-language seminar will be led by Chusert Supasitthumrong, a partner in the Tilleke & Gibbins dispute resolution group. It will take place at the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate (Rayong) from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on March 21, 2013.
