Abstract/Citation: The reason for the promulgation of these Ministerial Regulations are as follows: Since the Ministerial Regulation B.E. 2541 (1998) issued under the Labour Protection Act B.E. 2541 (1998) prescribing therein that part of the Labour Protection Act B.E. 2541 (1998) shall not be applied to an employer whose employee is engaged in domestic work without any involvement in business operation; therefore the protection provided to an employee engaged in domestic work without any involvement in business operation does not respond to the changed social and economic conditions. It is reasonably to extend the protection provided to the employee engaged in domestic work for more coverage. Accordingly, this Ministerial Regulation shall be issued.
