The Ministry of Labour has stressed its non-discriminatory principle to provide equal legal protection to immigrant workers to be on par with their Thai counterparts, while preparing multilingual media aimed at informing workers on their legal rights, says the labour rights chief.
The Department of Labour Protection and Welfare (DLPW) Sumet Mahosot said all immigrant workers will receive impartial legal protection similar to Thai workers regardless of their nationalities as the department is responsible to ensure fair employment to all workers.
All workers are entitled to a safe working environment, fair wages, good welfare, and are free from forced employment.
The DLPW has produced a multilingual media on the rights of employers and employees according to the Labour Protection Act BE 2541 in terms of publications and radio spots in Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodian. The department has also produced multimedia resources on safety, hygiene, and working environment for construction work in Thai, English, Myanmar, Lao, Cambodian, and Vietnamese in order to convey to workers their rights and available services.
The DLPW is also working with the Labour Rights Promotion Network (LPN) on the exchange of information related to unfair treatment to workers in order to enhance the coverage of labour protection.
