Company Work Regulations A company having 10 or more regular employees is required to establish and display written work rules and regulations that comply with the stipulations of the Labor Protection Act of B.E. 2541 (1998). The company work regulations must be submitted for approval to the District Office of Labor Protection and Welfare in the area where the company’s head office is located.
