Almost two years later, it looks like this thing is finally coming to a conclusion. There was a hearing recently where testimony was given and there will be another hearing in a couple of months that should be the final hearing. The consensus seems to be the case needs to be concluded.
How do I think it will go? While I can't be sure, I feel that I have a good chance of walking away with a favorable resolution when all is said and done.
Hope it gets sorted before u die... Two years is juz a tad slow methinks.
I may be wrong but it seems to me that they are dragging their heels on purpose. Even the courts.
You could have a water-tight case and they know this and don't want to rule in the foreigner's favour. Hoping you would have given up by now.
If you do win, it will be interesting to know how long and how difficult it is to claim the award and if you have to go back to court, again because of this.

Regardless of the outcome fair play to you for standing up for yourself and not just letting it go after all the time it has taken.

So they smiled a lot?
There is a final hearing in Labour Court this coming week regarding my severance case. I've been told the verdict will be announced at that time. I'm still positive, but time will tell. Either way, I'll post it here.
Great - thanx for the update
I have seen foreigners here receive very large and just payments following lengthy disputes at the labour court and there does not seem to be any prejudice against foreign employees. This week at a seminar presented by one of Thailand's best respected firms of lawyers we were informed there tends to be a bias towards the employer, regardless of the origins of the employee, which possibly explains a reluctance of Thais to use the process.
Good luck with this and it would be interesting to read the outcome. My feeling is that the longer a dispute is heard then the more likely the court is to be listening to the employee's side. Employers often have the muscle to bring matters to an early conclusion where an employee has less of a case.
Unexpectedly, the September Labour Court hearing resulted in some last minute defense testimony and so the disposition of the case will now be announced at a hearing in November. The date has not been fixed yet and I am waiting to hear.
Thanks for the supportive comments from many of you. It has been much appreciated.
One of the major negatives in pursuing the kind of action I have is that very often you are out there on your own not knowing who else is doing the same thing and what they are experiencing or how they have handled certain common issues.
I'll let you know the final result as soon as I know.
