Earlier this month, the DFDL Employment & Labour Team organized a well-attended webinar on Workforce Restructuring in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand & Vietnam. Our experts shared their insights with the audience on ways to minimize COVID-19 related labour challenges in compliance with local law as well as practical steps and considerations when implementing options available to employers to cut down labor costs in each jurisdiction. Following the webinar and the questions raised by attendees, the team has condensed this into a ‘top ten’ list. This easily readable top ten list of questions and answers gives clear guidance to companies on restructuring options (such as leave arrangements and changes in working conditions) and downsizing options (such as redundancy schemes or mutual terminations).
