Quitting after two weeks
« on: July 02, 2020, 11:59:37 pm »
F-visa holder at a hagwon. Not interested in teaching hereafter. No resignation clause in the contract.

I spoke with with someone at Seoul Global to make an appointment with the lawyer but as it's necessary to explain the issue I'm having in order to book, I told her the details. She claims any individual can quit at anytime and only a resignation letter needs to be submitted. Then since I was feeling unsure about it, she offered to transfer me to the Ministry of Employment and Labor's labor law counseling hotline. The consultant I spoke with said that since there is no provision in Korean labor law regarding early resignation that I would need to discuss it with my employer.

I have an appointment later with a labor lawyer at Seoul Global.

I'm not sure I understand your problem. You have an F visa. You're quitting your job.

What's... what's the issue?

You're not a slave, OP. You can quit whenever you want.

You don't need to do anything to quit. Just quit, or give them notice that you'll stop working as of a certain day.
