Employers are required to deduct 4% from their employees’ salary for monthly Social Security contributions, up to a maximum at 600 Baht per employee. There is also an employers’ contribution paid to the Social Security Office for the same amount.

In order to become effective, a Ministerial Regulation has to be issued by the Ministry of Labour and published in the Royal Gazette. Such Regulation is expected to be issued and published in early January 2013.
