Labour protection for teachers at private schools

Postbox letter from No Justice to the Chalkies

Every person working in Thailand, who receives money for their labour, have the right to labour protection. However this is not true if you are a teacher or principal - foreign or Thai, working as a teacher at a Thai private school.


A teacher's day in court

Postbox letter from Justice for Chalkies

A group of teachers took a Bangkok private school to court over severance pay and wrongful termination of contracts.


Teachers rights

Know your rights as a teacher in Thailand

I have always been amazed by how little most foreigners and Thai people know about Thai Labor Law. Why wouldn’t you want to know what your rights are under the law?


With regards to severance pay

Postbox letter from Walter

My friend was awarded 90,000 baht and the school had to pay it.


Severance pay issue

Postbox letter from Mr John

I also investigated the possibility of getting severance pay as a previous employer did not renew my contract after three years of service.


Be careful with that resignation letter

Postbox letter from

I realize that there is an appropriate time for a resignation letter. However, in a situation where you have not been offered a new yearly contract and you did not violate your contract in terms of paper work or duties and nobody is telling you anything then the Thai Administration's seemingly harmless sign this resignation letter document is not in your best interest because they will not have to pay you anything regarding severance pay.
