Employment termination in Thailand

Termination process

Employee contracts can be terminated if a just cause is established, such as dishonesty, negligence, fraud, or any other work-related offences, without any obligation to make severance payments.

Employees who’ve been employed for less than 120 days can be terminated without cause or any obligation to make severance payments.

Notice period

The employer must ordinarily give advance notice of at least one full payment cycle (i.e 30 days), which is legally required for indefinite contracts; but no more than 3 months, unless the contract/ work rules provide for a longer period.

Severance pay

If an employee is terminated without just cause are entitled to a severance package equivalent to their tenure with the employer.
