In Thailand, employers who hire 10 or more employees must provide the evidences of employment as follows:
- Work rules & regulations in Thai language for the employees and disclose it at the workplace within 15 days since the day they started employing 10 or more employees. They also have to send a copy of the work rules & regulations to the General Director of the Department of Labor Protection and Welfare.
- These work rules must contain at least the details of working days, normal working time, rest periods, holidays, rules of taking holidays, rules of overtime and holiday work, the date and place of wage payment, overtime pay, holiday pay and holiday overtime pay, leave, rules of taking leave, discipline, disciplinary measures, lodging of grievances, termination of employment, severance pay and special severance pay.
- The record of employees must contain at least the particulars of name and surname, gender, nationality, date of birth, present address, date of commencement of employment, position, rate of salary or wages and other benefits as agreed between an employee and an employer and date of termination of employment.
- The documents relating the payment of wages, overtime pay, holiday pay and holiday overtime pay must contain at least the particulars of working days and working time, work done by employees who receive wages on a piece rate basis, and rate and amount of wages, overtime pay, holiday pay and holiday overtime pay with the signature of the employee. The evidence of such payment by direct transfer to a commercial bank account or other financial institutions is deemed as the evidence.
These work rules & regulations are still enforceable even though the number of employees decreases afterwards.
