Unemployed and laid-off workers in S. Korea now allowed to join company unions Updated: 2021-07-06 09:31:59 KST

Revised labor laws take effect today in South Korea, which includes an amendment allowing unemployed and laid-off workers to join labor unions.
The Ministry of Employment and Labor's move is aimed at ensuring basic workers' rights are sufficiently guaranteed.
Prior to the revision, those workers were allowed to join industrial unions, but not company unions.
The revisions bring South Korea's labor laws closer in line with the International Labor Organization's core conventions, of which three were ratified in April.
