The Thai economy has been experiencing significant growth during the last several decades. This has been caused by several factors, including the reduction of trade boundaries, flow of services and the mobilisation of a skilled workforce globally.

In order to prevent unforeseeable risks, companies based in Thailand have a duty of care to protect their employees – both locally and overseas by providing them with prompt risk assessments, advice, and constant assistance before, during and after their business trip.

The purpose of this article is to provide a useful resource for Thai employers regarding their responsibilities when assigning their employees to work overseas.
