Putting an end to the severance pay issue

Putting an end to the severance pay issue

If Thailand gives you a teaching license and a work permit than every teacher has labor rights.
I have met with my lawyer and two letters will be sent to two schools for money I am owed from severance pay as per Thai labor laws. The letters will have to be signed as received and the schools will have seven days to respond to the letters regarding severance pay and 7% interest as the law specifies. If they don't respond the lawyer will take action and it will quickly go to the labor court.

There is a labor law book in English that is available in Thailand but it helps to have a lawyer take action. The process is simple and inexpensive as actually most lawyers don't do this kind of work as Thais just go to a labor office and submit forms themselves. Then a labor inspector will go out to the school and collect the facts. The school will either act to avoid labor court or they will have to face a court which will follow the laws in place. The process doesn't take long as specified in the labor court book.

I will see how long it actually takes. My lawyer is interested and hungry for a victory because he realizes the future work in this area with regard to foreign teachers. If everything works out his name will be included in Part two.
