    The labor law in Thailand is NOT gray
    3rd April 2014

    If terminating there are a few, clearly defined things listed in Section 119 and these have to be properly logged by letter from the employer to the employee.

    Termination can be made but severance pay must be paid as stated in section 67. Anyone employed in Thailand whether Thai, Western, ET, yellow people with pink spots must receive a notice period not less than their normal pay cycle - so weekly paid, your employer must give you at least a week’s notice and the notice period must include a full pay period in salary. Monthly paid then must include at least a full pay cycle.

    The last few days, i came across cases where employers had fooled foreign teachers by pressurizing them into signing resignation letters etc. It is critical that we know some rights and not fall for such cheap scams.

    Yes. The payment cycle is most important.

    So, is non-renewal of contract called "termination" as defined above?

    that could not have been very comfortable ... at all
    yes, and this has been discussed at length in another thread. However, non-renewal of your first contract (provided it is 1 year or less in duration) is not considered to be termination.

    Interesting we post this now from ajarn.com, when this has been much more thoroughly dissected here on this site already going on two years ago. :confused:
