Prescribing the Type of Work a Worker Cannot Claim Overtime Pay and Holiday Pay Rights to 2552
B.E. (2009 A.D.)
The Minister of the Ministry of Labour has issued a regulation as follows:
- Ministerial Regulation Volume 8 (2541 B.E. or 1998 A.D.), under the Labour Protection Act 2541 B.E. (1998 A.D.), shall be repealed.
- The type of work a worker cannot claim overtime pay for, under section 61, and overtime holiday pay for, under section 63, although being entitled to compensation equal to the rate for hourly wages on work days based on the number of hours worked, comprises the normal work duties of a worker in looking after a place or property.
Given on 19 June 2552 B.E. (2009 A.D.)
Mr. Phaithoon Kaeothong
Minister of Labour
Remark: The reason for promulgating this Ministerial Regulation is because section 65 (9) of the Labour Protection Act 2541 B.E. (1998 A.D.) which was amended by the Labour Protection Act (Volume 2) 2551 B.E. (2008 A.D.) stipulates that other work as prescribed in the ministerial regulation is work that a worker is not entitled to receive overtime pay for under section 61, nor overtime holiday pay for under section 63, although being entitled to compensation equal to the rate for hourly wages on work days based on the number of hours worked. It is therefore appropriate to issue this Ministerial Regulation.
