Employment law in Korea - an overview
04 May 2017
The Republic of Korea (often referred to as South Korea and in this in-brief as Korea) has one of Asia’s strongest performing economies and is home to some of the world’s largest brands.
Despite its fast ageing population and a chronically low level of productivity, Korea continues to be popular place to invest for foreign companies.
This inbrief provides a snapshot of some of the key aspects of employment law in Korea. Our Hong Kong office was recently opened to meet a growing demand from many of our clients for coordinated employment and immigration/global mobility support across the Asia Pacific region (including Korea).
This publication provides general guidance only: expert advice should be sought in relation to particular circumstances. Our Hong Kong office can source Korean law advice through its links with local firms in Korea.
