Questions & Answers

Working Conditions

My employer wants us to work on promotions and special weekend camps for free or for less than our normal hourly wage. Can he do that?

If the request means you are working more than 40 hours or if the work is on a Sunday, you are entitled to additional wages. The additional wags should not be less than what you normally earn.

For those of you negotiating your contract, you may want to discuss overtime conditions and payment with your potential employer. Since you and  your employer may have a different definition of what constitutes overtime, make sure you are both clear on all points.

Korea does not provide automatic time and a half for overtime. Overtime may not be more hours than you usually work, but may applied to a 40-hour work week.
