Housing

I've heard that some employers don't pay their foreign staff's housing. Is that true?

Although most employers either provide housing, pay the deposit while the employee pays the monthly rent or provides a housing allowance, there are a few who do not.

Housing costs are structure very differently than in many Western countries and it can be difficult for a new arrival to meet the payment requirements.  See housing information  and also scroll down to other housing info options. Or you can click on the Moving to Korea tab and then go over to the Housing column.

If you are looking at coming to Korea to work, you want to make sure your housing costs will be either fully covered or that whatever contribution your employer offers is sufficient to allow you to obtain accomodations that meet your needs.

The housing aspects are contractual issues and according to K4E's legal consultant, the law does not spell out an employer's obligations in this area.
