Office Closed – National Labour Day
Every first day of May (May 1) is celebrated in Thailand – as in many countries around the world – as National Labour Day. It is an official holiday for employees, and so many businesses will be closed for the day.
In Thailand, National Labour Day has been celebrated since 1956 when it was declared a holiday by the government of Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkhram.
The objective of this day is to recognize the employee’s duty and responsibility they show every day of the year.
