In order to resolve the issue of illegal foreign workers in Thailand, and regulate those who hire them or help to bring them into the country, the government has urgently promulgated a new law, entitled the Royal Decree on Managing the Work of Foreigners B.E. 2560 (2017) (the New Law), which came into effect on June 23, 2017. It replaces and unifies the Working of Foreigner Act B.E. 2551 (2008) and the Royal Decree on Recruitment of Foreigners B.E. 2559 (2016). The amendments also provide that employees cannot be transferred as a result of a change in employer without their consent and a new employer is obligated to assume all of the rights and obligations of the old employer. Under the current LPA, an employer may terminate an employee who has an indefinite term employment contract without cause and without giving otherwise statutorily required notice by making a payment in lieu of notice. The law, however, does not specify when this payment must be made. The amendments address this by requiring that employers make payments in lieu of notice on the effective date of termination.
