Additional leave compliance rules and complexities

Annual leave

For their first year in a job, employees’ annual leave is calculated on a pro-rata basis. After they’ve been in the role for one year, they get a holiday entitlement of 6 days paid leave a year, which they can carry over into the next year if they don’t use it.

Sick leave

Employees in Thailand can take up to 30 days’ paid sick leave each year, and they must provide a doctor’s note if they’re absent for more than 3 days in a row.

Workers can also take work-related injury leave for up to 12 months on full pay.

Maternity and paternity leave

Mothers can take at least 98 days’ maternity leave, but employers only have to pay them for the first 45 days. There is no paternity leave in the private sector, though fathers in the public sector often get up to 15 days’ paternity leave. There are no statutory regulations to speak of when it comes to shared parental leave.
