Businesses asked to give employees day off on July 27

The Department of Labour Protection and Welfare (DLPW) has asked businesses to respect the Songkran substitute holiday on July 27 by giving their employees the day off work.



The government recently designated Monday, July 27 as the first of three public holidays to compensate for the Songkran holiday, which was cancelled amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

DLPW director general Apinya Sujarittanan said employers have been asked to cooperate by announcing July 27 as a traditional holiday this year.

He said the government will announce the other two public holidays in compensation for Songkran at a later date.
