What Thai Employers Should Know When Hiring Employees 泰國雇主聘僱員工須知

It is important for Thai employers to know the obligations for Thai employers and benefits for employees under Thai laws and regulations. If not, it is possible to trigger violation of Thai laws. As there are different requirements an employer must comply with when hiring different number of employees. The following are summarization of these differences.


A. Hiring 1 employee or more 聘僱一名或以上員工

Both employer and employee must register social security fund (“SSF”) and workmen’s compensation fund. In addition, the registration should be completed within 30 days from the date of hiring the employee.

Employers must withhold social security payments collected from employee's salary every month, as well as submitting it to the Social Security Administration by 15th of the following month.

雇主及員工須註冊社會保險基金以及員工賠償基金。此外,需在聘僱員工的30天內完成註冊。有關社會保險基金以及員工賠償基金的介紹,請參考我們之前的文章 “來泰國創業或就業需要知道的泰國社保”在以及“員工職災後的權利”在。雇主必須每月從受僱員工資中代繳社會保障金,並在次月 15 日之前向社保局繳交。
