The Ministry of Labor , through a collaboration agreement with the Korean Migrant Center in December 09, increased the number of language services for phone calls. Migrant workers who wish to consult on delayed payment, finding a job and other inquiries related to the workplace can dial 1544-1350 or 1350, press 4 at the automated voice menu system and then choose the desired language. When a call is made to the labor ministry, it will be directed to the Korea Migrant Center first, and then be linked with a labor expert, forming a three-way phone consulting service.
The consulting hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays (lunch hour: 12 to 1 p.m.). The language service for Kyrgyz (Kyrgyzstan) is provided only on Thursday, Friday and Sunday. For more information you can call the labor ministry's consulting service on 031-345-5004 (Korean).
The service is available in 17 languages. To access, dial 1588-5644, then press the number assigned to each language:
English (1), Japanese (2), Chinese (3), French (4), Spanish (5), Italian (6), Russian (7), German (8), Portuguese (9), Arabic (10), Polish (11), Turkish (12), Swedish (13), Thai (14), Vietnamese (15), Malay-Indonesian (16).
