Below you’ll find the link to the Private School Act BE 2550 (AD 2007) translated in the English Language by Chandler & Tong-Ek 130611.
A very important part in this act for teachers in private schools that deliver basic education (Formal School) is Part 6 Section 86.
The Act can be downloaded here: http://www.ctlo.com/mediacenter/Publ...hoolAct-En.pdfSection 86. The affairs of a Formal School only on the part of the Director, teachers and educational personnel shall not be subject to the law on labor protection, the law on labor relations, the law on social security and the law on compensation. However, the Director, teachers and educational personnel of a Formal School shall receive remunerations not less than those prescribed in the law on labor protection. Working protection, the adoption of Working Protection Committee and the minimum remunerations of the Director, teachers and educational personnel of the Formal Schools shall be in accordance with the rules prescribed by the Commission.
And everyone should read that section and understand that yes, you do get the same rights as those working in the public sector, there is just a different method of enforcement. It is nonsense to say that private schools can do as they please under the law (but in practice obviously they can because this is Thailand...).
