The research is aimed at studying ASEAN Charter and Thailand's labor commitment; studying and reviewing Thailand's current labor laws; and studying and seeking appropriate approaches for labor law improvement and amendment in accordance with ASEAN Economic Community. The research applied qualitative research methodology by analyzing legal contents, legislation and relevant legal research. Research findings were that Thailand has missions to comply with labor agreements including a free flow of skilled labor in ASEAN Economic Community. The Labor Protection Act B.E. 2541 (1998) and the amendments to the Act do not have any provisions not conforming with Thailand's labor commitment according to ASEAN Charter on labor laws, so there is still no need for labor law amendment.
