GOE - Gyeongsangdo vacation question
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:38:55 am »
I read through the job benefits, etc. for Gyeongsangdo and it says there are 18 vacation days. This is from their website.

I thought all MOEs were now doing 26 days vacation.

Can anyone provide some info about this?

Thanks.

It is now labor law to require everyone get 26 days per year, some MOEs did that with renewal bonus days before it was required for 1st year contracts as well.

Wrong. Very wrong!

My GOE contract states 26 days. I think the amount of vacation days was changed last year, so maybe the website info hasn't been updated yet. Hope this helps!

This 26 vacation days clause was updated after summer 2019 I believe.  Not sure of which month it was when they changed it, but if you signed your contract before then, you probably have the 18 days old clause on there.

It may be a contractual agreement between the POE, but it is not a national governmental 'labor law'

Korean Labor Law changed in 2018 and the amount of annual leave went up from 15 days to 26 days.
The exception is for small companies (less than 5 employees).

There is a detailed post on Reddit here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Korean_Law/comments/fidnsy/annual_paid_leave_and_foreign_workers/

What is not used during the contract period is to be paid out as Unused Annual Leave in cash, and 25% of that money then is used to increase severance
https://www.reddit.com/r/Korean_Law/comments/fhw90m/korean_labor_law_most_foreign_employees_lose_1520/

Additionally, the wording of the contract is very important and there are two other administrative items which can also affect the use of Annual Leave.

The Reddit sub is run by a Korean Labor Law Firm and they have tons of articles, but if you need more help just send an email to the info.klabor@gmail.com account and they will get back to you.

Cheers

Three foreign teachers almost certainly means there are at least five total employees.

6 days of vacation? Are people really taking jobs like that?

The total number of annual leave may vary depending on when you joined a company. For example, an employee whose contract starts on January 1st, 2018 is entitled to total 26 days of leave for the first two years. (11 days of leave for the first year, and 15 days for the second year).
