Employment & Labor Disputes

Bangkok Legal’s employment lawyers have detailed knowledge of the employment laws of Thailand. Our Bangkok Lawyer are frequently engaged by foreign nationals and companies in Thailand to resolve employment disputes concerning international teachers, corporate managers and senior corporate executives.

Once instructed, Bangkok Legal’s employment specialists are quick to act and seek, wherever possible, to settle the matter before the issue of formal proceedings to Thai Labor Court becomes necessary, often by the use of Compromise Agreements. Compromise Agreements are commonly used to settle senior executive level disputes in Thailand.

The range of contentious matters undertaken by Bangkok Legal’s employment lawyers includes unfair dismissal, sex, race and disability discrimination, equal pay, unlawful deductions, wrongful dismissal, industrial disputes, union recognition, and the enforcement of post termination of employment restrictive covenants.
