Employment contracts

There are two types of employment contracts commonly used in Thailand: fixed-term contracts and indefinite contracts. A fixed-term contract is for a specific period of time, usually one year or less, and will automatically terminate upon the expiration of the term. An indefinite contract, on the other hand, has no predetermined end date and will continue until terminated by either the employer or the employee.

In Thailand, employment contracts may also include provisions for probationary periods, during which the employee’s performance will be evaluated before the contract is finalized. It is important for employers to follow all relevant laws and regulations when hiring and terminating employees in Thailand, as failure to do so can result in legal consequences.


Working Hours

In Vietnam, the standard working hours are 8 hours per day and 48 hours per week

Benefits contribution

In Vietnam, employers are required to contribute to the social security benefits of their employees. These benefits include old-age, disability, and survivor pensions; medical care; maternity benefits; and unemployment benefits.
