1st offer:Employment Agreement Institute located in ...... (hereinafter referred to as “Institute”) and a citizen of (whose passport number is and permanent address is , hereinafter referred to as “Teacher”) make this employment agreement (hereinafter called “Agreement”) and agree to the terms and conditions set forth herein.Article 1.

Renewal or extended agreement must be signed no later than 2 months prior to the end of “Agreement”.The “Teacher’ should be healthy mentally andphysically. Within the first month after the “Teacher” reports to work, the “Teacher” is required to undergo a medical check-up as required under the Korean immigration law and to complete the alien registration process and to provide a copy of the alien registration card to the “Institute”.. Article 2. Duties and Responsibilities of “Teacher”To teach English language according to the curriculum and the teaching method of “Institute”To perform administrative and extracurricular works such as lesson plan, student placement/level testing, lunch-table classes, etc. as instructed by “Institute” To familiarize with curriculum, teaching materials, procedures, and policies of “Institute”To assist “Institute” with the development of teaching materials or programs when neededTo participate in staff meetings, events and activities of “Institute”To notify “Institute” promptly when “Teacher” is sick, in peril, or in need of help.Article 3. Work Hours Work hours shall be from to Monday through Friday excluding national holidays of Republic of Korea, and shall include time for breaks. “Teacher’” will teach up to 120 hours per month, and daily or weekly schedules of teaching classes shall be set by the “Institute” within the work hours set forth in paragraph 1 above. “Teacher” agrees that the work hours can be adjusted in such a case where “Institute” needs to change the schedule of classes as it deems necessary. However, the total work hours shall not exceed the number of hours articulated in paragraph 1 above. At the request of “Institute”, “Teacher” may need to work overtime hours beyond the work hours set forth in paragraph 1 This is pretty normal. Be aware that "At the request of “Institute”, “Teacher” may need to work overtime hours" means mandatory OT.Working hours is blank, should be filled in.Also, it'd be nice if they defined their teaching hour. 120/week is normal, but if they're doing the "1 teaching hour = 1 hour" thing it could be a pretty intense schedule.Article 4. Salary and Severance payThe monthly salary shall be 2,300,000 Korean Won per month. The monthly salary shall be paid on the 10 th of the every following month. If that day falls on a holiday, or Saturday, or Sunday, salary shall be paid on the immediately preceding business day. When “Teacher” works overtime hours in accordance with Article 3, paragraph 4 above, “Teacher” shall be paid overtime payment at the rate of Korean won per hour.Participation of “Teacher” in meetings or events which are set forth in Article 2, paragraph 5 shall not constitute the overtime work even though such activities may take place out of the work hours set forth in Article 3, paragraph 1 above, and “Teacher” shall not claim compensation for participation in such meetings or events. Did you redact the OT rate, or is it really blank in the contract? That rate is actually a factor that I, at least, use to evaluate. Should be ~25,000/hr. No less than 20,000. If it's blank on your contract, get them to fill it in.“Teacher” shall be paid a severance pay of million Korean won when “Teacher” completes the 12 month contractual period. The severance pay shall be neither subject to proration nor paid when the “Agreement” is either closed or terminated before the completion of 12 months contractual period. Another mysterious blank. This should be 2.3million, since severance is supposed to be your monthly salary.Article 5. Holidays and Vacation1. During the term of this “Agreement”, “Teacher” shall be entitled to a total of working days of paid vacation. More blanks. Don't settle for less than 10 days.“Teacher” shall take the vacation during the annual closure of “Institute” first. And the remaining balance of vacation days shall be taken at the request of “Teacher”. Prior to taking the vacation, “Teacher” shall set the vacation plan and obtain the approval on it from “Institute” in advance. 4.

In the event of a serious illness or accident, the “Teacher” is allowed additional 2 day unpaid leaves. If the “Teacher” is still incapable of fulfilling the duties after that period, this “Agreement” will be regarded as terminated.Yet more blanks. Average is 3 sick days.Also: Holy shit, you're fired if you need more than 5 days? That's ridiculous. I mean, I could see it if you were out for a couple weeks, but there are a number of relatively common accidents/illnesses that would require 5 days.Article 7. Leave without Pay1. In case “Teacher” is absent from work or classes including but not limited to tardiness, early leave, days-off, etc., such absences shall be treated as “Leave without Pay”, and shall be reflected in the monthly salary calculation through deductions.2. Such absences/cases of tardiness shall be accounted for in terms of full hours for the purpose of salary calculation, with any absence/tardiness over 10 minutes rounded up to an hour and any absence/tardiness less than 10 minutes rounded down. 3. The base rate for the purpose of determining Leave without Pay deductions shall be Korean won per hour.More blanks. This is an important one, too. Technically they can only pro-rate your pay, so (monthly pay)/(working days)/(hours per day).A lot of hagwons are trying to deduct at OT rate, which is not legal, and is the owner trying to subsidize the cost of a sub on your back.Article 8. Airline TicketWhen “Teacher” completes the 12 month contractual term of “Agreement” and returns to his/ her home country, “Institute” shall provide an economy class airline ticket for “Teacher” to return to his/her home country. Return ticket is good.Article 9.

Any removal or damage (excluding normal wear and tear) shall be the responsibility of “Teacher”.Get a list of what's in the apartment. "Furnished" could mean any number of things. Make sure its got what you need, and hold out for AC.Article 10. Bank Account“Teacher” shall open a bank account at a bank near the “Institute” or the housing provided.

Provision of false information, documents, or materials by “Teacher” in relation to Teacher’s employment application for this position or the visa.Failure of “Teacher” to perform satisfactorily the roles and responsibilities set forth in “Agreement”Wut? This is basically a catch all for "We don't like you, therefore you're a bad teacher.Failure of “Teacher” to adhere to the Code of Conduct set forth in Article 13 above continuously.The procedure for termination by “Institute” is as follows: 1st warning – 2nd warning – 3rd notice of termination. However, violation of laws, or other misconduct by “Teacher” which has jeopardized any students or staff members of the “Institute”, or which damages the reputation of the “Institute”, will be the cause for immediate dismissal without warning in advance.
