AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN KOREA
SMALL & MEDIUM SIZE ENTERPRISES COMMITTEE MEETING
Dear AMCHAM Members,
Entrepreneurs often lack an HR professional in the early years of a business to help keep them out of legal limbo when it comes to employment law. Furthermore, as the employee number grows in the young company, new labor requirements automatically apply – often without the entrepreneur’s noticing the change. To give us an up-to-date, practical understanding of labor laws that have immediate relevancy for small- and medium-sized companies, two partners from J & S Law will give a presentation.
Retired Korean Judge Jin-Gyeong CHEONG, Ph.D., Labor & Employment Law and NY Attorney Sean HAYES, the only non-Korean to work for the Korean court system, will give a presentation on the definition of and the obligations owed to employees under Korean Labor Standards Act.
The presentation is a must for those that enjoy a lively dialogue and/or have or intend to have more than five employees in their organization. Judge Cheong and Sean will be available for questions. Both individuals are known to be very candid and energetic. We are sure that their presentation will not only be enlightening, but will entertain.
