There is the saying that employee’s rights are human rights. Today in Thailand many laborers from across the world and from across Asia are experiencing different forms of exploitation such as physical, mental, emotional and financial. Many are also deprived of their labour rights to earn a satisfactory living wage and work in healthy and safe workplaces as determined by local laws.
Today labour disputes are becoming more common. We have heard about closures of certain factories or even a business due to workers striking all while the employees and at times also the management are in the midst of cooling off period. Many employees during the labour disputes complain about the conditions of their employment, fringe benefits, hours of work, tenure and most commonly the wages.
Labour Court representation is very important when it comes to employee rights. Take note that every employee has the right for a fair salary in Thailand which means they should not be paid below the minimum wage as has been set by the Thai government and that they should also not exceed a maximum of 8 hours a day of work.
