The Law Reform Commission (LRC) will propose separating the Labour Court from the Courts of Justice.
LRC chairman Kanit na Nakorn has signed his name endorsing the proposal to be submitted to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) chairman and the National Reform Council (NRC) chief.
Many labour cases involve a relationship of inequality between employers and their employees, the LRC says.
This justifies the need for a separate court.
Many rulings also have a big impact on the public, it added.
Since the numbers of such cases are rising, they are now being processed slowly, which means those involved do not receive swift justice, the LRC said.
