AustCham Thailand invites members to join a business briefing webinar on “Options for Employers in Thailand During COVID-19 Outbreak”.  

As Thailand, and the world, face the growing COVID-19 crisis, the impact has begun to spread beyond people’s health and into the economy as a whole. While some businesses may be able to move to remote working practices to minimize economic distress, others may require a physical presence that becomes difficult or impossible to maintain, or may face substantial changes to their operations, resulting in hardship or emergency measures.

In this rapidly developing situation, employers may thus find themselves faced with unforeseeable events that require them to take drastic actions related to their workforce. In such instances, it is important that employers know their options. In this webinar, Chusert Supasitthumrong, Partner at Tilleke & Gibbins, will identity some of the more common scenarios that are arising, and what employers in Thailand can do under Thai labor laws when faced with them.
