Foreign migrant workers who have either taken a new job or left an old one must inform the Department of Employment (DOE) of the changes within 7-15 days or face a Bt20,000 maximum fine, DOE director-general Petcharat Sinuay warned on Monday.

 

Aiming to address the misunderstanding among employers about job changes by foreign migrant workers, Petcharat said the Section 13 of the Royal Decree on Managing the Work of Foreigners (No. 2) B.E. 2561 (2018) required employers to report to the DOE the foreign migrant worker’s name, nationality and job description within 15 days of employment and any worker’s departure from said jobs within 15 days along with the reason for termination of employment. 

 

For those working in Thailand via the MOU contracts that allow companies to import foreign migrant workers to supply to various establishments, employers must inform the MOU contract-earning companies and the DOE within seven days of employment being terminated and the reason, she said.

 

Officials may examine the work contracts kept by the employers, a copy of which is given to the worker, she added urging people to call the Labour Ministry's hotline 1506 (press 2 for the DOE) for advice.
