Money Matters

My employer pays me less than my hourly wage when I work overtime. Is that usual in Korea?

Whether it's usual or not, it's not legal. If your hourly wage is W20,000 an hour, then your overtime pay should be the same. It is not legal for the employer to pay you W15,000. Time and a half or double time is not always required however.
