A group of former employees of the now-defunct “The One Insurance” company rallied in front of Thailand’s Office of the Insurance Commission (OIC) since this morning (Thursday) to demand their unpaid compensation.

 

Speaking on behalf of the laid-off workers, a labour activist said that about 300 former employees of the firm have not received any compensation almost two months after the closure of the company.

 

According to the law, the Non-Life Insurance Fund is technically obliged to pay laid-off workers overdue salaries, severance pay and other benefits, estimated at about 82 million baht plus 15% interest, within 30 days of the January 14th announcement that those laid off will get paid.

Best of luck pursuing that.

As long as money has not been drained in some illegal way then it seems they certainly did not WIN from it it. But that is up to auditors.

Just switched companies for my car insurance yesterday after hearing, and just about confirmed, that my current one is about to go under.
