Is it possible to terminate a Thai employee without paying compensation?

If an employment contract does not specify any duration, either party can terminate the contract by giving notice at or before any time of payment, to take effect in the next pay period. An employee may be dismissed without due notice and severance pay if the employee:

Intentionally commits a crime or act of dishonesty against the employer Intentionally or negligently causes the employer to suffer damage Violates the employer's work rules, regulations or lawful orders and a written warning has been given (except that such warning is not required for serious offences) Has been absent for three consecutive working days without a reasonable excuse Is adjudged to serve a prison sentence (except where such sentence arose due to negligence or petty offence).
