Warning Letters: Guidelines for Employers

Bangkok Post, Corporate Counsellor Column

One of the grounds for dismissal with cause under Section 119 of the Labour Protection Act is when an employee repeats wrongdoing for which a warning letter has previously been issued. The employer may issue a warning letter for a violation of the work rules, and when the employee later commits the same violation, the employer believes that he is within his rights to dismiss the employee for serious cause. However, if the warning letter itself is not in compliance with the law, the Court may issue a judgment that the employee has been unfairly dismissed because no proper warning letter has been issued in respect of that offense. This article examines the requirements for a warning letter under Thai law.
