A new law passed by the Thai junta will give a massive increase in medical benefits to workers in the Kingdom, especially those employed by the state.

The Workmen’s Compensation Act, published in the Royal Gazette, would offer employees medical protections from the very first day they start work.

According to Thailand labor attorneys, Thai labor law often doesn’t go far enough in pushing businesses to protect workers enough when something goes wrong on the job like an accident or work-related illness.

In cases of illnesses or injuries that are caused at work and certified by a doctor, employers may potentially now be responsible for paying 70% of the worker’s income for the missed days.

Additionally, if a disability is caused at work, the employer might have to cover the missed income for 15 years.

State employees who become sick or injured at work might also be entitled to full medical coverage without any limits whatsoever.

The new bill is anticipated to come into effect on December 11, 2018.
