On September 22, employment law specialists from Tilleke & Gibbins in Bangkok held a seminar to address current issues relating to employment regulations in Thailand for companies at Gemopolis Industrial Estate in eastern Bangkok. The presentations were on two main topics—employment conditions and termination of employment.
Chusert Supasitthumrong, partner and director of the firm’s dispute resolution department, led the first presentation. In the session, Chusert gave an overview of employment conditions and agreements, discussed strikes and lockouts, noted some illustrative case studies, and provided practical advice on how companies can alter their employees’ contracts in compliance with Thai law.
The second installment of the seminar was delivered by Piyawat Vitooraporn, an associate from the dispute resolution department. He explained for attendees the key considerations in termination of employment, including procedures, consequences, and causes of unfair termination.
