Tailandia - ILO decision on compensation for migrant workers (2011)

The State Enterprise Workers Relations Confederation (SERC) submitted a complaint to the ILO in June of 2009 that alleged that Thailand’s current policy of denying compensation to migrant workers for work-related accidents and illnesses violated domestic and international labour standards. In February 2010, the ILO Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations in its deliberations at the 99th International Labour Conference upheld the SERC complaint and directed the Thai government to provide migrant workers the same benefits and entitlement to work-related illness and injury as enjoyed by Thai nationals.
