Amendment to labour law offers protection to employees working from home
Labour Protection Act BE 2566 (2023), which facilitates working from home, will come into effect on April 18 this year, deputy government spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul said on Thursday.
She said the amendment was necessary as the old Labour Protection Act BE 2541 (1998) did not take into account changes in the working process.
“More employees are working from their residences or from other venues instead of employers’ place of work,” she said.
