52-Hour Workweek Delayed in Korea for SMEs: Korean Labor Law Update

The Korean government delayed the implementation of the 52-hour workplace system for certain small and medium size companies. This System is intended to apply to all companies in Korea and mandates that no employee may work for an employer for more than 52-hours in any one week.

The Ministry of Employment and Labor of Korea announced, on December 11, 2019, that the 52-hour workplace system is suspended for SMEs (Employers with less than 300 workers) until the end of 2020. The Korean Ministry of Employment and Labor made the announcement, because of fears that the measure may harm these businesses.

We are of the opinion that because of recent changes in the enforcement of Korean labor laws, it is advisable to revise company employment rules, agreements and have a compliance audit for your company in Korea.
