Changes to the EPS (Employment Permit System)

The changes to the EPS or Employment Permit System are official. I guess this is good news for the foreign workers in Korea as they can now work continuously for five years without interruption. The government have also stepped up in protecting the rights of foreign workers. Of course, nothing is foolproof but at least policies are being put into place. At least, employers can now directly hire workers from overseas.

From July 28, foreign nationals will be able to work for up to five straight years without having to make the obligatory one-month sojourn outside Korea to extend their job contracts, the Ministry of Labor said Tuesday.

According to the revised Foreign Workers Employment Law, those currently allowed to work for up to three years will be able to extend their contracts for another two years. Currently, they have to leave the country for one month before renewal.

Employment procedures will also change for management to hire more eligible persons. Under the current system, employers have to pick workers from those passing a Korean language test without screening their individual details.

But a new list will show each jobseeker’s qualifications and career record. Employers will also be able to recruit directly via interviews overseas.
