On February 16, 2021, at 11.00 hours, Labour Minister Mr. Suchart Chomklin assigned Advisory Board Member to the Ministry of Labour Mr. Manas Kosol, to accept a letter requesting assistance from an employee representative group from Italthai Marine Company Limited, in claims that the employer terminated their employment without compensation and provident fund. The occasion took place at the Labour Relations Committee meeting room, 1st floor, Department of Labour Protection and Welfare. The company announced employment termination by claiming a lack of financial liquidity, causing the need to restructure the organization to reduce costs. The company, therefore, gradually terminated the employment of 200-300 employees. Still, the business has not been closed and did not pay compensation under the law or provide a delayed payment. The employee group then brought a letter to petition for help on this occasion.
