Migrant workers to be granted grace period in Thailand

The Star, Thailand, 7 October 2020 - BANGKOK (Xinhua): Thailand's labour Minister Suchart Chomklin said on Tuesday (Oct 6) that he had decided to grant grace period to migrant workers whose employment are to expire by next month.

The decision, reached by the migrant workers' policy management committee chaired by Suchart, was intended to assist migrants in returning to their homelands where COVID-19 is surging.

The minister, however, did not say how long the grace period will last. He made it clear the issue will be proposed for the cabinet to consider in due course.

Eligible for the grace period are migrant workers whose four-year employment contracts end starting from next month until the end of December next year.
