Human Resource Guidebook on Employer Obligations and Cultural Sensitivity
The Guidebook aims to support Thai employers, human resource officers, interpreters and local staff working directly with migrant workers to comply with their legal obligations and with labour rights standards.
The findings of this Guidebook are based on desk research as well as field assessments, including key stakeholder interviews and focus group discussions. This Guidebook presents a review of selected national regulations, policies and frameworks for the management of migrant workers, and the rights and responsibilities of employers and workers under Thai laws related to labour protection and labour migration.
The Guidebook is divided into two main chapters. The first chapter focuses on information about the rights and responsibilities of employers. The second chapter provides an understanding of cultural sensitivity in the workplace among workers from Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand, with tips for employers and human resource officers to improve workplace communications.
